Career[edit]

Oldham Athletic[edit]

Mellor joined Oldham Athletic as sixteen-year-old from Manchester United[3] and after spending time in Oldham's youth team he made his competitive debut during the second match of the 2011-12 season, as a substitute in a Football League Cup match against Carlisle United.[4] He scored sixteen minutes into his Football League debut on 16 August in a match against Scunthorpe.[5]

On 28 August 2011 The People reported that Premier League Fulham manager Martin Jol was preparing a bid for teenager Mellor after scouts were impressed with his strength and maturity.[6] Nothing came of this report however, and he remained at Oldham, making 21 appearances before the end of the season.

In October 2012 he joined Chorley on loan for a one-month period[7] and made his club debut on 16 October in a Northern Premier League match against AFC Fylde.[8]

The one - year option that the club had on Mellor's contract was exercised, extending his contract till the end of the 2014-15 season.[9]
