Oldham striker Hallam Hope suffers ‘severe injuries’ after ‘vicious attack’

Oldham striker Hallam Hope suffered “serious injuries” after being the victim of a “vicious attack” following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat by Chesterfield.

The 28-year-old was attacked in the staff parking lot outside of Boundary Park.

He required hospital treatment and will be sidelined for “a few weeks”.

Oldham, who plays in the Vanarama National League after being relegated from the second tier last season, has reported the matter to police and provided CCTV footage of the incident.

“Oldham Athletic regrets to report that our player Hallam Hope was the victim of a malicious attack on Saturday night,” the club said in a statement.

“Hallam has sustained serious injuries that required hospital treatment and will be out of action for a few weeks.

“The club support Hallam and will continue to do so. We wish him a speedy recovery from a horrible experience.”

Barbados international Hope came through Everton’s academy system and had enduring spells with Bury, Carlisle and Swindon before joining the Latics last summer.

The Manchester-born player represented England up to U19 level.

Oldham will not comment further on the incident during the investigation.
