Latics have completed a double signing today by adding attacking midfielder Harry Charsley to their ranks.

The 27-year-old says he is ready for the challenge of the National League having spent the last four years in the Football League with Mansfield, Port Vale and Newport County, where he has made 48 appearances over the last 18 months.

Charsley, who was part of the Port Vale side that won promotion via the League Two play-offs in 2022, is a coup for Oldham manager Micky Mellon.

“Harry is a really clever player and we’ve worked really hard to get him,” said the Scot.

“He had opportunities to stay in the EFL but when we spoke to him and told him what we want to do at Oldham, he happily agreed to join us.

“We want him to be part of what we achieve here. We were clear in where we needed to strengthen and signing Harry is a huge positive for us.”

Charsley, who has signed a two-year deal, said: “It is a really exciting time to be joining Oldham and I can’t wait for the season to start.

“I had other offers from clubs from higher divisions during the summer but the ambitions here were clear from my conversations with Micky Mellon and I’m delighted to be part of it.

“I’ve had two days of training with the squad, the standard and intensity has been excellent and I’m very excited about the season ahead.”

Charsley's first club was Everton, joining the Toffees when he was just nine years old. He went on to serve the club as a professional for six years.
