An Oldham fans' pressure group say they have received a response from the club as they push for a meeting with Latics owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

Push The Boundary's protest before the 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient earlier this month saw 300 fans come together and march on the ground to voice their displeasure at the direction of the club under the Moroccan former football agent.

The group – set up by fans Will Gough, Adam Keeley, Steve Shipman and Danny Taylor – have previously been offered a meeting with managing director Natalie Atkinson and finance director Shahed Alam which was declined.

They are now hoping the success of their protest will see them get the chance to sit down with Lemsagam, who took over at Boundary Park in January 2018.

"Following on from our email to the club last week, Push The Boundary can confirm that we have received a response in relation to meeting with the chairman," a statement read.

"The email reply states that when Abdallah is back in the country, the club will contact fans to arrange something further with those who are requesting a meeting with him. When we have a response we will let you know.

"We shall continue to exert pressure on the club for Abdallah to meet with us and obtain answers to as many queries as you may have."

Sections of the fanbase have been unimpressed with turnover of managers and players at Boundary Park, Latics 22nd in League Two following Saturday's 2-0 defeat at leaders Swindon.

Push The Boundary have other events planned in the coming weeks as they look to continue to exert pressure on the Latics. 

Following the protest on December 7, club managing director Natalie Atkinson said: "Abdallah is willing to meet with fans once he returns to the country in a couple of weeks’ time.

“The club appreciates moving forwards it has to work collectively to ensure Oldham Athletic is successful.”

It is not clear if the statement referred directly to the new group, all EFL clubs having to hold fans' forums several times a season under league rules.
