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.

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!
