The Roughyeds


The Oldham Times is right behind us, just ask Phil !

PHIL Joy might be a FORWARD, but he’s living proof (see pictures) that The Oldham Times is right BEHIND the Roughyeds in our quest to have a great season in 2018 and to go flat out for promotion from Betfred League 1.

The local weekly, launched by Newsquest nearly six months ago, is one of our kit sponsors this season and is featured on the rear of both the home-kit shorts and the away-kit shorts, as Phil was happy to demonstrate.

Editor of The Oldham Times, Ian Savage said:

“We are delighted to be one of the sponsors of Oldham Rugby League Club’s new kit. The club is an integral part of the town and is enormously important to the sporting community.

“As the only local weekly community newspaper in the borough it is fantastic that The Oldham Times is supporting and working so closely with the club.

“Here’s to a successful season ahead.”

Oldham RL Club chairman Chris Hamilton said:

“We are delighted to add The Oldham Times to our portfolio of corporate sponsors for 2018. They have already been a big supporter of the club and we look forward to working with them moving forward.”

Main shirt sponsors are Regenda Homes and the others are Hanlon and Wright of Dukinfield; Oasis Academy Oldham; Premier SSangYong; H Mullaney and Son of Mossley; and the University of Salford.

Most of our 24 contracted players are sponsored individually, but still available are Gareth Owen, Craig Briscoe, Ben Davies, Danny Rasool, Joe Martin and Ben West.

To sponsor, or to find more information, please ring the club office at 07904 898177.

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.
