The Roughyeds


Strong squad for Lions cup-tie

OLDHAM boss Scott Naylor has named a strong 19-man squad for tomorrow’s third-round Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie against Featherstone Lions at the Vestacare Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

It includes the Roughyeds’ three latest signings — backs Zack McComb, Joe Martin and Ben West, who were all playing for NCL premier division side Siddal last season although McComb and Martin have been in professional environments previously.

Dual-reg players are not involved and most of the five contracted players whose names don’t figure in the 19 — Steven Nield, Gareth Owen, Craig Briscoe, Jack Spencer and Ben Davies — have injury issues.

Said Naylor:

“The Lions will be out to cause an upset. It’s their big day and we will have a lot of respect for them.

“But the reality is that if we do everything right and show the same intensity and attitude as we did at Whitehaven last week it will be a very difficult day for our visitors.”

Squad: Bent, Bridge, Crook, Eccleston, Hewitt, Holmes, Hughes, Johnson, Jones, Joy, Langtree, Martin, McComb, Neal, Nelmes, Rasool, Reid, West, Wilkinson.

Admission prices are £11 adults, £9 concessions, £2 under-16s with a £2 transfer to seats. Season tickets do NOT apply, apart from junior season-ticket holders who can use their passes in line with RFL policy for under-16 season-ticket holders.

The fourth-round draw will be made live on the BBC Sport website on Tuesday (Feb 27) from 7pm.

Eleven Betfred Championship sides will enter the draw alongside the 13 third-round winners.

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.
