York did the simple things a little bit better than us — Scott

DESCRIBING his side’s attitude as ‘first class’ and its willingness to work as ‘100 per cent, as always’, Oldham boss Scott Naylor said there was enough evidence in the 24-22 home defeat by York City Knights to conclude that there was still much work to be done on the training ground.

He said:

“York were very good in the right areas of the field and they did the simple things a little bit better than us.

“There are going to be a lot of tight, close games in this division and we need to be a little bit more patient in possession and smarter on the ball.”

Both teams scored four tries, but the difference was in Connor Robinson’s four goals from four shots against Paul Crook’s three from four, his one miss hitting an upright and bouncing out in a defining moment.

He added:

“It turned out to be the game I thought it would be. If anyone was thinking we were going to come into this division and dominate everybody they were sadly mistaken.

“This game showed just how tough this division is going to be. Several very good teams are going to be in the play-offs come the end of the season.

“Bradford beat York by two and York have now beaten us by two. That’s how competitive it’s going to be at the top end of Betfred League 1.

“At the end of the day we lost because we hit a post with a conversion.

“I hope our fans realise how tough this division s going to be and I hope they stick with us like they did the last time we were in League 1.”

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.
