During the 2000–01 English football season, Oldham Athletic A.F.C. competed in the Football League Second Division.

Season summary[edit]

Hopes were high for the Latics at the start of the 2000–01 season after a 4–1 opening day win at home to newly relegated Port Vale, but a run of 11 games without a win saw the club slump to second bottom in the league, making relegation look a real possibility. The signings of veteran winger David Eyres and midfielder Tony Carss gave the side added impetus and the Latics recovered well to again finish comfortably mid-table.[citation needed]
