History is repeating itself at League One side Oldham Athletic as the son of Irish legend Denis Irwin played a trial match this week.
Liam has been capped by the Republic of Ireland at Under-19 level making his debut against the Ukraine.
His father Denis was signed by Oldham on a free transfer from Leeds in 1986. Four years later he was sold to Manchester United for £700,000 and was lauded by Alex Ferguson as one of his greatest buys.
Denis was capped 56 times for Ireland scoring four goals.
