Oldham have confirmed the signing of halfback Adam Brook from Halifax for the 2020 season.
The 21-year-old made 11 appearances during a loan spell at Vestacre Park in 2019.
“I was happy at Oldham last season but this time I’m hoping for a bit more luck,” he said on the club website.
“I didn’t have the benefits of a good pre-season with the squad and then I broke a wrist in the first few weeks and I was out for what seemed like ages.
“The Championship will be a big new challenge for us, individually and as a team, but we’re up for it and on a personal note I’m really looking forward to having a good pre-season with the other lads. I didn’t get that last year and it does make a difference.
“We are back in for training next Tuesday and, given that our last game was on October 6, we’ve had a short, but very rewarding, break.
“It will be another long season, from early February to mid-October, and it’s a big challenge we’re all looking forward to.”
