Defender Curtis Tilt joined Latics on a loan deal this summer, to run initially until January 2021. Tilt’s career path into league football was quite unique as he was plucked from amateur football to play in non-league for Halesowen Town and Hednesford Town in 2015. Later in the same year, Tilt joined AFC Telford United, where he impressed enough in the National League North to earn a move to National League Wrexham ahead of the 2016-17 season. A loan spell with Forest Green Rovers followed before Tilt was signed by Blackpool in the summer of 2017. During his spell at Bloomfield Road, Tilt played over 100 first teams and attracted the interest of a few Championship clubs, including Latics. Tilt made the move to fellow League One side Rotherham United in January 2020, though he made just one appearance for the Millers before the COVID-19 outbreak curtailed the 2019-20 season. The Millers won promotion as they finished 2nd in the League One table and Tilt used the summer period to have surgery on a hip injury, with his return to fitness enabling Latics to bring him to the DW Stadium on a loan deal until January.
