Ex-Man Utd defender Eckersley joins Oldham

Former Manchester United defender Richard Eckersley has joined Oldham Athletic.

Eckersley, 26, was released by MLS side New York Red Bulls last December.

"This is my home. I live in the city centre, my family is all in Manchester so it's perfect for me," Eckersley told BBC Radio Manchester.

"New York was a great experience but I'm happy to be here and start working."
