Oldham Athletic youngster Paul Black has been rewarded with a one-year extension to his contract at Boundary Park.

Black, who turns 20 next week, made 13 appearances in League One this season after progressing through the Latics' youth system.

He is delighted to extend his association with his hometown club and would have been happy to sign on for much longer than another 12 months.

"If I had my way, I would have signed for a 10-year contract because all I want to do is to play for Oldham," he said.

"I was brought up in Oldham, went to school in Oldham and my friends watch me playing for Oldham which has been a dream come true.

"The club is in my heart and I look back to the days of Joe Royle and the team of legends who put smiles on faces. Hopefully at some stage we can get back to those days."
