SMS - Byrne Signs - and in squad today!

Recommended Posts

what are they dithering over? either sign him or not,whats the problem.

He might not want to sign. He may be waiting for a contract in Holland, and a month keeps his options open. If he can play centre half as well, we may need him at Tranmere today when they go route 1.

Errr... they have?


Giving a guy you have barely seen play a months contract to see if he is any good, is a bloody good move in my eyes... you wnat another JP or Thompson on our hands for two years??


On the other hand he could be the next ruuubes - 1 month is easy enough time to make a decision...

JOHN Sheridan has added to his Oldham Athletic squad by signing former Aberdeen defender Richie Byrne on a month’s contract.


The 26-year-old Irishman agreed terms on Friday before being named on the bench 24 hours later as Athletic won 1-0 at Tranmere Rovers.


Having impressed while on trial at Boundary Park, Byrne was handed a short-term deal by Sheridan who challenged him to oust Kelvin Lomax from the left-back position.


Sheridan said: "We've had a look at him and I like what I've seen. He can play left-back and centre-back, he's a very good addition and hopefully we can try and give him some football.


"Kelvin's playing there and playing well but I don't want him getting in a comfort zone, I want him (Byrne) to push other people in the team."


Byrne, who has been capped at B level by the Republic of Ireland, played for Shamrock Rovers and Dunfermline Athletic before joining Aberdeen in 2005. He made 59 appearances at Pittodrie, playing a part in a UEFA Cup campaign, before departing the club last summer.
