OLDHAM Athletic have kindly offered to sell tickets on our behalf for our fifth round Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie at Featherstone on Sunday, April 23 (3pm kick-off).
Whitebank is currently ‘out of bounds’ while development work takes place at the ground.
Said Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton: “We are extremely grateful to Athletic and to their chief executive Mark Moisley for offering us this facility, while the work at Whitebank is continuing.”
Featherstone tickets, which offer massive savings if purchased before April 19, will go sale at the Latics’ ticket office from 9am on Friday and, thereafter, from 9am to 5pm each day Monday to Friday inclusive.
Please note that these will be CASH ONLY transactions.
Added Chris: “We’ve had two good performances at Featherstone in the KP Championship (losing only 8-6 this year) and we hope to take a good following for what should be a cracking cup-tie.
“We hope to give a good account of ourselves and hopefully go through to round six.
“These early-bird tickets offer huge savings and its a shared gate so that’s another incentive for us trying to get as many of our fans there as possible.
“Athletic will help us to do that because their ticket office is easily accessible and is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. It is a great gesture so a big thank-you to them.”
Prices are as follows:
BEFORE April 19: Adults £12, concessions £8, juniors £5.
AFTER April 19 (and on the day): Adults £18, concessions £12, juniors £5.
