Oldham v Halifax -- How Scott saw it

A ‘frustrated’ Scott Naylor summed up like this when asked by the media for his post-match summary:

“We’ve clearly shown a lot of improvement in the last two games, but from our point of view it was another frustrating game for everybody at the club, including the fans.

“For the first 10 to 15 minutes after the forward-pass decision in the second half we needed to stay calm and focused and get back into the routine of the game. Instead, we seemed to panic, give penalties away and make mistakes.

“You can’t afford to do that against a side like Halifax. They’re a good side, going for the top four.

“The game was there for us to take and we failed to take it, but it’s a long season, there are a lot of games left and I’m asking the fans to stick with us because we’ll get it right and pull it round; I know we will.

“We need to take our chances and stay calm. We are desperate to get a win and when things go against us panic is creeping in.

“Also, we have to deal with adversity. You are not going to play for 80 minutes when everything goes your way.

“When it doesn’t, you have to take it on the chin, continue to work hard and use it as motivation to go again.

“Having said that, there were a lot of positives to come out of the performance and we have to kick-on and get ready for Dewsbury on Wednesday.

“We need our fans to stick with us. I’m asking them to do that because we’re working hard to end this losing run and strong support can only help us.”

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: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

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!
