The Roughyeds


Good Friday game switched to 6pm

OUR Betfred League 1 game at Bradford Bulls on Good Friday (March 30), originally scheduled to start at 3pm, will now kick-off at 6pm at the request of the Bulls.

Yorkshire towns don’t have a holiday on Good Friday, taking Tuesday instead, and that was the reason for the Bulls’ request.

We go to Halifax tonight (7.30pm kick-off) for our rescheduled Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fourth-round tie, which was postponed on Sunday because of snow. Tickets bought in advance of the Sunday game will still be valid, but please note that only the East Stand will be open tonight.

Our 19-man squad is unchanged from Sunday.

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

Joe Martin, Luke Nelmes, Jack Spencer and Matty Wilkinson have all played for Halifax in the past.

The fifth-round draw will be made on the BBC Sport website from 7pm tonight so tonight’s teams will probably be aware of it before they take the field.

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!
