Joe Wardle: 'Super League is the goal'

WITH the Law Cup clash at Rochdale only three sleeps away, Joe Wardle has let it be known that he believes Oldham will make it to Super League in the next five or six years.

He was quoted thus in this week’s League Express: ‘Super League is the goal. As a club we’ve set out a plan and our objective is the main target.

“IMG encourages clubs to grow in the right way rather than just spend a load of money for short-term success and then lose it all.

“I’d like to think we can achieve Super League in the next five or six years as there’s a lot going on at the club to hopefully make that happen. Things have to be done the right way for long-term success so that’s what we are trying to do.

“The first part of the on-field stuff is to get this club back to the Championship so nothing other than promotion is acceptable in my eyes The squad we’ve got is outstanding so that’s the first step. We’ll also be having a good crack at the 1895 Cup.”

Oldham are grouped with League One Rochdale and Championship high-fliers Halifax, the holders, who face Roughyeds at Boundary Park on Sunday week, January 28, kick-off 3pm, in a game that hopefully will attract loads of fans from both sides of the Pennines.

As far as this Sunday’s Law Cup game is concerned, Sean Long is keen to retain the Cup and has said he will name a strong side.

Elsewhere in League One, Workington Town have re-signed their former super star Jarrod Sammut, a half-back who has invariably given Oldham problems in the past. Town say the financial support of a fans’ group made the signing possible.
