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.
