FC HALIFAX TOWN 1, OLDHAM ATHLETIC 2
First-half goals from Rhys Turner and Brian Wilson secured Latics their third pre-season victory on a night when all eyes were on their trialists, especially Dutchman Ryan Hiwat.
The 19-year-old former PSV Eindhoven winger has been linked with moves to a number of big clubs so it is a coup for Latics to lure him to SportsDirect.com Park.
There were also runouts for four other trialists former Stockport County and Celtic centre back Josh Thompson, ex-Motherwell central defender Fraser Kerr, Jack Mmaae, one time striker for Belgian side Standard Liege and Jimmy Keohane, the former Exeter midfielder.
And there was also a premature finish due to floodlight failure as the friendly finished three minutes early.
Mike Jones headed narrowly over before Latics took the lead after 14 minutes when Turner found the net with a neat finish from a Jonathan Forte right-wing cross.
Latics doubled their lead after 27 minutes through an unlikely source. Full back Wilson received the ball on the edge of the box from a Jones corner and thundered home a shot from 25 yards.
