New Signing: Oli Putnam

Atherton Collieries can confirm the signing of Oliver Putnam, who joins the club from NWCFL high flyers Wythenshawe Town.

The attacking midfielder has previously impressed in the NPL Premier Division with Witton Albion, from whom he earned a transfer to eventual play-off winners Warrington Town in the summer of 2022.

Oli has also represented Bootle on loan, alongside fellow Collier Ben Rydel, before a permanent move to Wythenshawe Town. A versatile midfielder, Oli Putnam has experience in a variety of midfield roles as well as the right wing.

Speaking to the club on his signing, Oli said:

"It feels great to sign for the club, I'm looking forward to getting going and helping the team as much as I can.

"I’m someone who loves to get on the ball to try to make things happen, and I always try to play with high energy and hard work

"I just want to help the team win as many games as possible, it’s hard when results don’t go your way and you find yourself where we are now, but I’ve seen the quality in training and hopefully I can help bring that out in our performances!"

Oliver Putnam is available to sponsor. Please contact for more details.
