Big-match latest: Lannon in 19-man squad

RYAN Lannon, the Salford Red Devils forward who had a strong game for Oldham on dual-reg in the 14-0 win at Whitehaven, is again included in Scott Naylor’s 19-man squad for the big game against York City Knights at the Vestacare Stadium tomorrow (Sunday), kicking off at 3pm.

The 21-year-old back-rower, Wigan-born, is a product of the Salford youth system, who has earned a regular first-team spot over the last couple of seasons.

He has scored seven tries in 36 appearances for the Red Devils, whose website describes him as

“solid in defence, while offering fantastic attacking lines in the opposition third.”

OLDHAM (from): Bent, Bridge, Briscoe, Crook, Eccleston, Hewitt, Holmes, Hughes, Johnson, Joy, Langtree, Lannon, McComb, Neal, Nelmes, Reid, Spencer, West, Wilkinson.

YORK CITY KNIGHTS (from): Moss, Robson, Batchelor, Hey, Cockayne, Mazive, C Robinson, Marsh, A Robinson, Ellis, Siddons, Horne, Scott, Spears, Jubb, Donaldson, Roche, Porter, Hawksworth.

Prop Adam Robinson is a former Oldham player, while winger Kieren Moss is a former NRL player on loan from Hull KR. Also on loan is forward Colton Roche, who has just joined the Knights from Huddersfield Giants.

Half-back Matty Marsh and back-row forward James Donaldson are on dual-reg from Hull KR in a very experienced squad that has several over-30s in Ben Cockayne, Adam Robinson, Andy Ellis, Graeme Horne and Tim Spears, who will be playing his 350th career game after turning out previously for Featherstone Rovers (201 games), Batley Bulldogs (113), Dewsbury Rams (6) and Castleford Tigers (3).

A younger Oldham squad has only one player in the 30-plus category —- stand-off, goalkicker and vice-captain Paul Crook (31), who will lead the side in the absence of injured club captain Gareth Owen.

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.
