Blackpool player ratings midway through the Championship season
Steven Brown, general manager of Boundary Park, has sent letters to at least three Oldham fans telling them they can no longer attend the games.
The letter was shared on social media Monday by Bradley Knowles, director of the Oldham Athletic Supporters Foundation, who was among those to be banned.
The letter reads: “You have shown a desire to promote your aversion to Oldham Athletic Football Club, its management and progress, and you are influencing others to do the same. You are taking deliberate action to harm the club.
âIn light of these circumstances, I am writing to inform you that you are officially banned from all First Team and Youth Team matches at Boundary Park and on any other ground where either other team plays for a minimum period of three years. This is imposed with immediate effect. “
Although Oldham can bar fans from attending games at Boundary Park, a ban on attending away games is unenforceable without a court order.
As it turns out, Brown previously worked for Blackpool between 2013 and 2015, a period in which a number of supporters were threatened with legal action by the club’s former owners, the Oyston family.
A number of restraining orders have also been issued.
According to his LinkedIn page, Brown worked as a director of commercial sales.
Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam has come under criticism in recent years, with a number of protests staged during matches to try to force him out – in much the same vein as what has been happening had previously moved to Bloomfield Road.
