Awards Dinner

DON’T FORGET . . . the Awards Dinner is this Thursday, October 6 (7pm) at Whitebank. Few places still left at £25 for three-course dinner, all the presentations, speeches by chairman and head coach, a video presentation of an unforgettable year by our ‘movie man’ Peter Gray and a photographic presentation on the same theme by our official club photographer Dave Murgatroyd.

Most of the players and coaching staff will be in attendance on what promises to be a memorable evening for players and supporters alike.

There are still a few places left so come and share a celebration of the season with the boys who made it possible and entertained you along the way.

All you have to do to reserve your place or places — mixed company — is ring the club on 07904898177. If it’s on voicemail leave your name and number and mention the Awards Dinner and the club will get back to you.

You can also tell us on the phone who your player of the year is (deadline 5pm on Monday, Oct 3) or you can vote online here

We always get good feedback from fans after these annual Awards Dinners so if you haven’t attended one why not pick up the phone, give us a call and come along on Thursday to re-live the season all over again.

It will also whet your appetite for next season, our second in the Championship, which promises to be an absolute cracker.

Club Cash Lottery

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there's never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why ? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back -- not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It's back this week and it's been won first time out, so next week's jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order -- our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to:

he easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
