During the 1994–95 English football season, Oldham Athletic A.F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

When Joe Royle quit as Oldham manager to take over at Everton in November 1994, Sharp took over as player-manager at Boundary Park and they finished in midtable in the 1994–95 season – a disappointing showing for a side who had retained all but one of their key players (Mike Milligan) from the side that had been relegated from the Premier League and reached an FA Cup semi-final.
