KARL Evans is set to leave his position as chief executive of Oldham Athletic, The Oldham Times understands.

The former Bury CEO has been at Boundary Park for just over a year, joining in September 2020.

But his departure is the latest in a series of changes at senior level, with the club recently advertising for a club secretary, finance manager, ticket office manager, head groundsman and head physiotherapist, among other key roles.

Oldham Athletic have so far declined to comment on the situation, but The Oldham Times understands Evans is serving notice.

Upon joining Latics last year, Evans said: "I'm delighted to be a part of Oldham Athletic. How we conduct ourselves as a club is extremely important and I am committed on making sure as a team we continue to make a positive impact in the town.

"With my consultancy work at a number of different clubs now I have helped them improve in different areas, with this opportunity allowing me to do that once more."

He added: "I will always take into account the fans opinions as well as being open and honest. I know there's still a lot of work to do, but I am committed to help change things for the better."

Evans has previously worked at Manchester United, spending 26 years at Old Trafford.

For a decade his role was director of venue at Old Trafford, and he served on the Group Executive Board under David Gill, having an input on all functions across the business including commercial, communications, media, finance and football operations.

Evans was responsible for ticketing, catering, venue development, fan experience, hospitality sales and fulfilment (seasonal and match day), among other roles.
