The Roughyeds


We fully deserved it — Scott

SCOTT Naylor hailed a ‘fantastic’ performance after Oldham’s 27-6 triumph in the rescheduled Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fourth round tie at Halifax.

While club officials were thumbing through the record books to find out when Roughyeds last won at Halifax , the players were celebrating their win in a noisy post-match dressing room and head coach Naylor was giving his own run-down on a strong all-round performance in which his troops in two shades of green never looked like surrendering the initiative.

He said:

“It was fantastic — gritty, tough and resilient. Even when we put ourselves under pressure we manned up in defence to restrict them to one try on their home ground.

“Every man in the 17 gave everything he had to give and I can’t ask for more than that.

“When we had the ball we asked a few questions of them and scored some good, off-the-cuff tries. We controlled the game for most of the 80 minutes and played it the right way. When we got in front we stayed in front, despite having a player in the bin and losing the penalty count.

“That in itself showed how much effort we put in. We fully deserved it and I hope the lads get the credit they deserve off everybody this week.

“It showed once again that we have a lot to offer this season.

“It was a big night for the fans after the disappointment of losing to York and it was good to see them enjoying themselves and to hear them in fine voice.”

Fax boss Richard Marshall said:

“I fielded a young side, but I don’t want to take anything away from Oldham.

“They came with a simple, but very effective plan, which involved a good kicking game in which Hewitt kept sending us back. It was similar to how we played when beating Leigh.

“Our attitude wasn’t quite right and certainly not when compared with Oldham’s attitude.

“We played a young team and I take full responsibility for that. I thought that team was good enough to win and to play a lot better than it did.

“Oldham took us to task. They were really fired up and they deserved their win — simple as that.

“I took a calculated risk, bearing in mind that we go to Toulouse on Saturday. The young lads will have learned a lot. I’m sure they’ll play with more pride and passion next time.”

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!
