Oldham home shirt design for the 2018 season

AFTER several seasons playing in traditional red and white hoops, Oldham players will proudly turn out in a more modern design in the 2018 Betfred League 1 season which starts for Scott Naylor’s men at Whitehaven on Sunday, February 18.

Betfred have installed Roughyeds as second favourites to win the league title at 6-1, behind Bradford Bulls (4-9) whom they rate as odds-on to win promotion automatically.

With ten new signings, different kit suppliers, new dual-registration partners in Salford Red Devils and a return to the newly refurbished and renamed Vestacare Stadium, there’s a fresh look about the club this year — and that also stretches to this newly-designed home kit, supplied by Steeden.

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton:

“This doesn’t mean we won’t look again at hoops in the future, but we’ve settled on a new design which we think fans will like and want to wear.

“Steeden came up with this modern design which they, and we, think will prove very popular.”

Replica shirts are available to order now on the Oldham payments site.

An initial deposit of £10.00 per item will be required with the balance to be paid in full when the shirts arrive at the club. (An estimated 4-5 weeks at the latest).

Fans will be able to collect their purchase from the club during opening hours and on match days or pay to have it posted. The postage is taken at the same time at the initial deposit.

Priced at £38.00 for child sizes and £45.00 for adults, the shirts are supplied in a wide range of sizes detailed on the product page.

A strikingly-different away kit will be unveiled tomorrow (Sunday) and a range of leisure-wear on Monday.

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.
