The Roughyeds


You’ve got to be happy when you win — Scott

SCOTT Naylor couldn’t conceal his disappointment at the below-par performance Oldham came up with in their 30-2 win at North Wales Crusaders.

He’s been around for long enough, though, to know that if you score six tries in Wrexham and win you’ve got to accept the positives and the two precious league points and move on.

“A win’s a win,” said the Roughyeds’ boss. “It’s nice to pick up the two points as well. You’ve got to be happy when you win.

“It wasn’t a performance we could be proud of. To be honest, it was one of our worst displays for a long time.

“The game didn’t have any continuity and we seemed unsure at the ruck about what the match officials wanted, or didn’t want.

“When we got any decent field position we made a lot of errors which meant we didn’t put Crusaders under any sustained pressure.

“For a lot of the game we played in second gear and that allowed Crusaders to stay in the game for much longer than we would have liked.

“We had a chat at half-time and played with more structure in the second half. At least it was a bit better than the first half.

“It’s my job to sort out the things that need putting right as we strive to take on Bradford Bulls and then play Hunslet, Keighley and Hull KR in the cup.

“We’ve a lot of work to do.”

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.
