Featherstone Lions . . . what Scott said . . .

Scott Naylor said of the tie against Featherstone Lions, which should attract a good crowd to the Vestacare Stadium : “We’ve always had tough games against amateur sides and this one will be no exception.

“A third-round tie in such a prestigious competition as the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup is their big day; a chance to show what they’re made of and perhaps enable them
to cause an upset.

“They’re a good team from a town that’s steeped in rugby league and steeped in Challenge Cup history, so we’ll prepare for them as we would for any game,

“It will be a tough game, no doubt about that, and we have to make sure we’re ready.”

The tie will be our opening home game of the season, played over the weekend of February 24 and 25 so watch out for confirmation of match details which will be announced soon.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
