The Roughyeds


Information for fans ahead of the Keighley game

OUR third pre-season warm-up game against Keighley Cougars at the Vestacare Stadium tomorrow (3pm kick-off) sees our return to the borough after two seasons at Stalybridge.

As you already know, there have been significant changes at the ground since we last played there so it will be useful for supporters to know that:

  • THE smart, newly refurbished clubhouse, complete with new heating system and draught beers, opens at noon.
  • TURNSTILES open at 2pm and people entering the ground can purchase drinks all afternoon and during the course of the match by entering the clubhouse through the doors situated inside the ground.
  • TOILETS are also situated inside the clubhouse.
  • FANS parking in nearby streets and avenues are urged to respect residents, park sensibly and avoid blocking driveways.
  • ADMISSION prices are £10 adults, £6 concessions, £2 under-16s with a £2 across-the-board transfer to seats.
  • FANS transferring to seats can sit anywhere at this match apart from seats reserved for club officials and media.

Danny Langtree is expected to play after recovering from the illness that kept him out of the Barrow game.

A lot of new signings will be making home debuts in a squad which will also include trialists who played at Barrow and maybe a couple of dual-registration players from our new Betfred Super League partners, Salford Red Devils.

Club Cash

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

The 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!
