Oldham Athletic goalkeeper coach Steve Collis has left the club to join Notts County.

The 43-year-old spent three years with Latics after being added to Keith Curle's backroom staff in July 2021.

Collis, who had spent seven years as Rochdale's goalkeeper coach before moving to Carlisle, where he worked with Curle, survived all five managerial changes in his time at Boundary Park.

The former Southend, Crewe and Northampton goalkeeper now moves to the League Two club ahead of the 2024/25 season, reuniting with his former Watford youth team-mate Stuart Maynard.

“I’m delighted to be here ahead of such an exciting season for the club and I’m really looking forward to meeting the keepers and getting to know all the players when they return for pre-season training at the end of the month," he said after making the move.

“I’d also like to place on record my gratitude to Oldham Athletic, where there are very positive signs for the future. I wish the club all the very best.

“I’ve known Stuart Maynard since we were apprentices at Watford 27 years ago and we’ve kept in touch ever since, especially in recent years with Oldham and Wealdstone facing each other in the National League. He’s a fantastic coach and I’m really excited to be working alongside him.”

A spokesman for Latics said: "We’d like to thank Steve for all of his work at the club and wish him well with his move and for the future."

Collis' departure is the second on the backroom team since the end of last season, after first team coach and academy manager Paul Murray left by mutual consent last month.

The Oldham Times understands that Collis will be replaced and a new goalkeeper coach will be appointed.
