Penney takes Oldham post

Published Add your comment

Oldham have unveiled Dave Penney as their new manager after the former Darlington boss signed a two-year deal at Boundary Park.

Penney resigned from his position as Quakers boss on Thursday afternoon and replaces Joe Royle, who earlier this week announced Saturday's league clash at Walsall would be his final game in charge.

Penney has been a big success during his two and a half years at Darlington, taking them to the League Two play-off semi-finals last season and coping admirably with the restraints of a 10-point deduction after the club entered administration in February.

Managing director Simon Corney told Oldham's official website: "We are delighted to be able to welcome a manager of Dave's calibre to Boundary Park.

"He is a very professional and thorough person who ticked all the boxes and who has an excellent track record."

Penney still had two years left to run on his Darlington contract but Oldham will not have to pay any compensation due to the Quakers being in administration.
