Philliskirk Focussed on Youth

Oldham Athletic caretaker boss Tony Philliskirk has distanced himself from the vacant Manager’s role.

Philliskirk, who is currently Head of Youth at Boundary Park, led the Latics to a 3-1 victory over MK Dons on Saturday, their first win in ten league matches.

However, while he would be a popular choice with fans and players alike, the long serving coach maintains that his role with the youth-team which allows him to serve the club best.

“I enjoyed it at the weekend and the players all played well and responded in the right way,” said Philliskirk, who had previously been assisting Paul Dickov before the Scot’s departure.

“We worked harder than them, played some good stuff and fully deserved to win but I feel my strength is coaching and developing.”

“You can never say never but the Head of Youth job is a massive job in itself.”

“We’ve had some good news lately that the club have decided to retain the youth system and rightly so but with the EPPP [Elite Player Performance Plan] coming in I’m having to deal with all the paperwork and the audit process. We’re going to get audited in the next 12 months to be guaranteed our categorisation which obviously affects your funding, so that’s a massive job this year.”
