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.

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.
