Oldham RLFC

The Roughyeds


What a win !

OLDHAM became the third Betfred League 1 side to overturn Championship opposition in round four of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup with a stunning 27-6 triumph against Halifax on the Yorkshire side’s own patch at the MBi Shay Stadium.

Scott Naylor’s men dominated for most of the game and fully deserved a fifth-round shot at Super League’s Hull KR, a side they famously knocked out of the same competition two years ago.

In springing a surprise at Halifax they scored tries by Danny Langtree, Ben West, Matt Reid and Paul Crook, while Crook landed five goals and David Hewitt dropped a goal to extend the visitors lead to 21-6 with ten minutes left.

Former Oldham player Ben Heaton scored Halifax’s only try, goaled by Steve Tyrer, 16 minutes into the second half to cut the Roughyeds’ lead to 14-6, but the very dogged and determined visitors quickly hit back to book their place in round five with late tries by Reid and Crook.

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.
