Parker: Coup for Latics
Oldham have completed the signing of Keigan Parker following the striker's departure from Huddersfield.
The 27-year-old joins former Town team-mates Andy Holdsworth and Jonathan Worthington in making the trip down the M62 and has signed a two-year deal at Boundary Park.
Parker began his career with St Johnstone before moving to Blackpool where he spent four years. He joined Huddersfield in May 2008 and had a spell on loan at Hartlepool last season.
A career record of 68 goals from 341 appearances has convinced Latics boss Dave Penney that Parker could be the man to fire Oldham to the Championship.
"I am delighted to have got Keigan," Penney told the club's official website.
"He is an exciting player with the sort of pace that unsettles defenders and he knows what our league is all about."
