The Roughyeds


Roughyed Review goes digital

OUR 24-page match-day magazine, Roughyed Review, goes digital for the first time at Sunday’s big game against York City Knights when we include a Quick Response Code (QR Code) — a type of matrix barcode that can be quickly interpreted by an electronic device such as a modern smartphone.

QR code scanning-software is available for most mobile platforms including iOS and Android.

This week’s programme features a QR code on the back cover. Once scanned, the code will reveal a URL detailing, from 2pm, the full Oldham team to face York, including playing positions.

For a cover price of £3 you can read what Chris Hamilton and Scott Naylor have to say and discover who is featured in this week’s Fan Focus. Could it be you ?

George Cowburn continues his excellent series in which he looks at the Oldham club’s contribution to major events in RL history.

Lucas Onyango tells why he was keen to come back to us to in a backroom capacity on the playing side.

The Oldham RL Heritage Trust provide a pictorial look at Oldham v York games down the years; we examine today’s City Knights in detail; there’s a review of Craig Halstead’s new book, ‘Roughyeds — Against All The Odds’; and we have a picture and story about the rugby league boys and girls of Mayfield Primary School, Derker, who will be involved in a curtain-raiser.

There’s all that, and more, including lots of pictures of your favourite players. As the York game will be our first home league game of the season what better time than this to give Roughyed Review a try.

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.
