SUNDAY’S derby with Rochdale at Bower Fold (3pm kick-off) will be refereed by the hugely-experienced Gareth Hewer, who had the distinction of handling last year’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final between Hull FC and Warrington Wolves at Wembley.
Under-16s with an adult will get FREE admission — and with schools breaking up for the summer holidays we hope that will appeal to families who won’t be going away.
Home, away and Summer Bash replica shirts, all sizes, will be on sale from the shop inside Bower Fold. Prices are £45 (home and away) and £35 (Summer Bash). Cash or cheque only please.
It will be Sammy Gee’s 100th game for Oldham, so congratulations to our vice-captain on reaching this milestone in his Roughyeds career.
We hope as many fans as possible will make a special effort to attend this one, which is clearly a huge game for both clubs in terms f bragging rights and crucially important league points.
