Oldham favourite Tyson re-signs

Oldham’s recruitment for 2017 has been handed a huge boost with the re-signing of former centre George Tyson.

Tyson was an instrumental figure in Oldham’s promotion to the Championship in 2015 but departed the club to go full-time with Sheffield Eagles.

However, the 23-year-old has now returned to his old stomping ground, just one year after signing a three-year contract with the Eagles.

“I enjoyed my time at Sheffield,” said Tyson.

“But due to the club’s unfortunate circumstances, a return to Oldham was the right move.

“There are a lot of familiar faces here, including Scott, ‘Spanner’ (Lee Spencer) and Pete Carey.

“I’ve a load of friends at Oldham and I’m getting a job outside of rugby so everything is working out fine.

“I’m looking forward to putting the Oldham shirt on again.”
