The Roughyeds


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.”

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!
