Dutchman joins the fold

Midfielder Sidney Schmeltz has signed for the Latics on a two-year deal. The 24-year-old Dutchman has played professional football in Holland for Willem II, Almere City, Sparta Rotterdam and SC Veendam. When Veenham recently filed for bankruptcy, Schmeltz became a free agent.

Manager Lee Johnson commented, "Sidney is the perfect character and just the sort of player we are after. He is quick, exciting, skilful and hungry to learn the English game. It is our job as coaches to teach him that."
