Byrne Leaves On Loan

Cliff Bryne has returned to former club Scunthorpe United on an emergency loan basis.

The 31 year old defender was linked to his former club over the summer, and he's now moved to them for 93 days with the loan expiring on December 13.

He was actually at Scunthorpe for almost ten years before being released, and current manager Brian Laws has always maintained that that was a mistake by the former management team.

After joining us in the summer of 2012, Cliff has gone on to make 43 first team appearances and has featured three times this season as a substitute.

Lee Johnson explained that he didn't really want to let Cliff go, but as he wasn't going to be a mainstay in the side it was decided that it was best to let him leave and play regularly which was something he couldn't promise him.

He also said that it didn't necessarily mean his Oldham career was over, even though Scunthorpe want him back.

Oldham have also however extended the loan stay of Burnley's Joseph Mills. The left back will now remain at Boundary Park until October 13th after the agreement was struck.

The player had just completed his initial 28 day stay with us, and has made five appearances so far. He's now eligible for a further potential six matches.

With James Tarkowski potentially a doubt for this weekend, it does seem a strange decision to let Cliff go at this stage, but Lee Johnson must be relatively pleased wit the cover he has or Tark's chances for recovery.
