Specsavers extend partnership with RFL

The Rugby Football League is delighted to announce an extended partnership with Specsavers which sees the trusted optician continue their involvement with the organisation for a fifth year.

Since their sponsorship at the Rugby League World Cup 2013, Specsavers has appeared on all Match Officials throughout the game – from the Betfred Super League, to Championship down to grassroots Rugby League and the recognised brand will be ever present once again in 2018. 

Specsavers will continue to support their brand presence and marketing rights through a number of activations throughout the year, including the ‘fifth official’ campaign which in 2017 saw nine-year-old Jessica Marsh enjoy a once in a lifetime experience as part of the Match Officials Team at the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final.

Rugby Football League Interim Chief Executive Officer Ralph Rimmer said,

“It is fantastic news that Specsavers are continuing their partnership with the Rugby Football League for another year.

“They have been a perfect match for sponsorship of our Match Officials at all levels of the game for the last four years and we’re looking forward to working together once again in 2018.”

Specsavers Head of Sport Sponsorship James Read said, “We’re delighted to be continuing our longstanding sponsorship of Rugby League. Technological advancements in recent years have certainly helped umpires and referees, but we will always rely on their personal judgements too. At Specsavers we’re glad to do our bit, where we can, to help ensure that they get the best possible support to do their job. We are also proud to support such an engaging sport from the elite game to grassroots.”

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.
