In the interest of being fully transparent, we wanted to advise that on Thursday, former Oldham Athletic director Barry Owen contacted Push The Boundary, to discuss his time at the club.

As a group, we found it very disappointing that this contact has only been made now and not when he was in a position of influence within the club, a position that could have been of benefit to the fanbase. This has been fed back to Barry.

Given Barry’s reputation amongst the fanbase and the manner in which he departed, we felt following the conversation with Barry, that rather than a written response, an interview should be carried out in a manner which is convenient to all Latics fans. We have therefore suggested that he appears on The Boundary Park Alert System podcast to fully discuss his time at the club. This way, all supporters have the benefit of hearing this for themselves.
