Jamaica international forward Jordan Andrade has expressed his disappointment after Oldham terminated his contract.

The Roughyeds tweeted that they had parted ways with Andrade due to gross misconduct.

They added they would make no further comment.

Replying to their tweet announcing the news, Andrade said: “Contract terminated after been hungover on a Saturday morning after a family celebration, I’m a part time rugby player with two young children.

“I have tried my best all season just to get chucked out like that and to then tweet this I am honestly gutted but nothing surprises me.

“I held my hands up and apologised for a poor choice but wasn’t enough sorry.”

Andrade has made 11 appearances for Oldham this season, but has only featured once since the end of June.

He has won three caps for Jamaica.

The forward has previously had spells with Hunslet, Dewsbury, Bradford, North Wales, Oxford and Gloucestershire All Golds.

What Oldham said

Oldham have struggled in League 1 following their relegation from the Championship at the end of last season.

Stuart Littler’s side have won six of 17 games and are currently four points adrift of the play-offs.

Their statement on social media read: “Oldham RLFC can confirm that it has terminated the contract of Jordan Andrade, with immediate effect, due to gross misconduct.

“The club will make no further comment on this matter as we concentrate on the remaining three games of the league season.”

Oldham make the long trip to Cornwall at the weekend and then face Swinton away the following week.

They round off their season at home to Hunslet on September 4.

Hunslet are the only team that Oldham can catch in the table.
