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.

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!
