The Roughyeds


19-man squad to go to Halifax

FOUR players who have worn Halifax jerseys in the past are included in Oldham’s 19-man squad for tomorrow’s fourth-round Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie at the MBi Shay Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

Joe Martin, Jack Spencer, Matty Wilkinson and Luke Nelmes have all played previously for the Betfred Championship side, Wilkinson and Nelmes as recently as last season.

Also in the 19 are Martin’s fellow ex-Siddal and Halifax-born lads Zack McComb and Ben West.

There is no place, however, for long-standing injury victim and club captain Gareth Owen, who is being given a little more time to work on his general fitness.

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

Halifax (from): Barber, Brook, Butler, Calcott, Davies, Douglas, Fleming, Grady, Heaton, Johnstone, Jones, Kaye, McGrath, Moore, Morris, Saltonstall, Syme, Tyrer, Woodburn-Hall.

Fans can pay at the gate as usual tomorrow, but it’s cheaper to buy tickets in advance and that can be done online until midnight tonight at the Halifax online ticket site.

Fifth round draw

The fifth-round draw will be made live on the BBC Sport website on Tuesday from 7pm.

Warrington Wolves, Hull KR, Widnes Vikings and Catalan Dragons will enter the draw alongside the 12 fourth-round winners.

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
