In August 1934, Silcock left United for Oldham Athletic. Sadly, the move proved a mistake and, after failing to make a breakthrough and spending half a season in the reserves at Boundary Park, he moved to non-league Droylsden.
There, without the pressures of playing for a top side, he was able to combine playing with business, and ran the ‘Rob Roy Hotel’ in Stretford.
