Manchester Alliance for the new Oldham Athletic

Tuesday, July 18 – 1899
The ground of the late Oldham County Football Club will next season be again used to exploit the Association game. The Pine Villa club, who last season achieved distinction in the Oldham Junior Association League, have taken over the ground and changed their name to the Oldham Athletic. Last night they agreed to join the Manchester Alliance.
