HUNDREDS of Oldham Athletic supporters gathered outside Boundary Park this afternoon in the biggest protest yet against the club's ownership.

Fans are desperate for a change of regime as the 126-year-old club is facing the threat of exiting the Football League.

Latics supporters are fed up with how the club has been run by owner Abdallah Lemsagam during his four-year involvement and are determined to influence chance.

Some wore black, some were dressed as clowns, some held banners and others carried a coffin which was laid outside the doors of the main entrance, but they were all united in their voice, with chants against the owner, and his sporting director brother Mo, in the latest demonstration.

Fan Dan Taylor, one of the founders of the fans' group Push The Boundary, gave an impassioned speech as to why they feel compelled to take action before the protest, which lasted around 45 minutes, began.

Once the game kicked off, an aeroplane circled over Boundary Park trailing a banner which read: "AL & MO TIME TO GO! #SAVEOAFC".

The Oldham Times:

The plane was spotted around the fourth minute - a time that fans have largely used to stage their protests during games to recognise owner Aballah Lemsagam's four-year involvement with the club.

The Moroccan businessman's sporting director brother, Mo, was not in his usual position in the directors' box.
