Summer Bash 2017


OLDHAM RLFC are pleased to announce that we will play our neighbours Rochdale Hornets at Bloomfield Road, Blackpool on Saturday, May 27 (2.30pm kick-off) as part of Summer Bash 2017.

Six Kingstone Press Championship matches will be staged over the weekend — three on May 27 and three on Sunday, May 28 — and our derby clash will be the first of the six, following the League 1 cup final, which will kick-off at noon.

Said Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton:

“It was great to be part of Summer Bash for the first time last season and we are eagerly looking forward to the 2017 weekend.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase our club and the Kingstone Press Championship as a whole in front of a big TV audience. It’s another bonus to be the first on of the six Championship games because it gives us an opportunity to set the standards for the weekend, as it were, with what promises to be a highly-exciting local derby.

“That alone will add lots of fervour to the occasion and will make the game all the more competitive and compelling. It will be eagerly anticipated by everyone, not least supporters of both clubs.”

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!
