Kyran Johnson


Squad Number: 5


Oldham Crest




Position: Full-back, Left Wing
DOB: March 23, 1994



Height: 6' 02"
Weight: 75kg


Profile

Quick over distance, elusive at close quarters, Johnson is at the peak of his career at the age of 24. Unlike practically every other member of the squad he's recently signed a new two-year deal as opposed to a one-year agreement,

As a full-back, he has the speed and grace to swallow up the metres on kick returns as he demonstrated so admirably in the narrow defeat at Swinton.


Player Sponsor: Mick Harrop









Dave Hewitt


Squad Number: 7


Oldham Crest




Position: Scrum-half, Half-back
DOB: November 4, 1995



Height: 5'07"
Weight: 76kg


Profile

A typically cheeky little half-back, this product of the St Helens youth system is quick off a standing start and has a dangerous left foot.

In the absence of the injured Crook, he is currently the side's goalkicking marksman with the ability to do the unexpected.

Squad Number: 14


Oldham Crest




Position: Hooker
DOB: June 13, 1996

Weight: 82kg


Profile

With three hookers on the books there's going to be a real battle for game time and 'Wilky' will be right up there challenging.
