Ireland Underage International Jack Byrne Scores Yet Another Cracker For Oldham

Jack Byrne scored yet another cracking long range effort as Oldham defeated Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night in League One.

The former Manchester City youth scored a debut goal from slightly closer in against Charlton Athletic two weeks ago, and it appears Byrne is enjoying somewhat of a revival with John Sheridan’s side having joined on loan from Wigan Athletic.

Byrne had struggled for game time since returning from another loan spell with Cambuur in Holland just over a year ago.

City, his parent club at the time, allowed him to join Wigan on the advice of Ireland international James McClean following a brief stint at Blackburn. However, he only managed a handful of appearances for the Latics as they were relegated to League One.

Thankfully things are now looking more positive for the youngster who has impressed thus far for his temporary club. Fellow Irishmen Rory Gaffney and Ryan Sweeney scored for Bristol while Eoin Doyle was also on the scoresheet for Oldham.
