Hope everyone and their loved ones are doing well in this testing time.
With all the free time we’ve been dealt with recently, not to mention the general state we find our club in, to take mind of current matters, I’ve been getting all nostalgic and misty eyed for our mental club, and inspired by the PTB ‘You are my Oldham’ stories, got to thinking about my early days as a fan and first experiences. My first ever game was a late season friendly game v Liverpool in 1992, which from what I understand was a testimonial for our ex youth player Wayne Harrison.
As a fresh faced 7 year old with very little attention span, all I can vaguely remember is the score was 2-2 and that I sat in the George Hill upper with my old man, along with his Liverpool supporting mate and his lad of around the same age as me, where I was less taken by the action and more the hotter-than-the-sun chocolate searing my taste buds off and ‘state of the art’ electronic graphics on the scoreboard to my right (Come… On… Oldham!!) – luckily I was a little more hooked for my next visit, the 5-3 v Forest early the next season, which really started my love affair with the club and football in general.
Despite it being a low key friendly I always consider this my first ever game of football (also keeps up a tradition of testimonials I've been to, including Stitch, Shez and Eyresy's games), so means a lot to me, but there is understandably very little info on the game recorded . A few searches have yielded some basic info on Liverpool’s scorers, line ups etc, but nothing for Latics, so wondered if anyone here remembers the game and who scored for us etc?
Long shot given as it was a long time ago and an unremarkable game (searches say around 4,400 in attendance), but some users here have an encyclopaedic knowledge of our club, so worth an ask!
