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

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
