Oldham sign Sherrife for 2020
Oldham have confirmed the signing of Jamaica international Jode Sherrife for the 2020 season.
He comes from Dewsbury Rams and has also played for Keighley Cougars and Featherstone Rovers.
“I can’t wait to get started,” he said. “From what I gather Oldham seems to be a closely-knit, family-type of club and that was one of the main things that appealed to me when I talked to the chairman.
“I’m passionate about rugby and about the development of kids in the sport. Family is also very important to me and one of the reasons I love rugby so much is because its like one big happy family.
“In all the talks I’ve had with different people, the Oldham club came across as a good place to be and that was a big thing in my decision to sign.”
Oldham head coach Diskin added: “We needed a big, craggy prop up there in the middle, especially so since Scott Law headed off to Australia.
“Like Scott, Jode has been around a long time and he knows the game inside out. We’ve done well to get him because there aren’t a lot of players about who fit into that mould.
“He’s passionate about the game — always has been — and he’s the sort of personality who will be good for us around the club and in the dressing room as well as on the pitch.”
