Gill out of Hull KR tie

NEW loan signing Kieran Gill is out of Oldham’s fifth-round Challenge Cup clash with Super League’s Hull KR.

Parent club Castleford Tigers have pulled him because the 22-year-old centre has a problem with a knee cap.

His try-scoring Oldham debut in last Sunday’s 32-18 win over Keighley Cougars was his first game back after major surgery to reconstruct his left knee.

Said Roughyeds boss Scott Naylor:

“Cas pulled him out but I think it’s precautionary.

“I don’t know whether he got a knock against Keighley or it’s something he’s done in training, but ten months is a long time out and I suppose you’re very lucky if you don’t feel anything first game back.”

Prop Adam Neal is also unlikely to play. After leaving the field with concussion midway through the second half of the Keighley game, he was due to have a head test on Saturday morning.

He didn’t train last night, however, and Naylor is more or less resigned to the fact that he won’t be ready for Sunday.

Keighley’s Josh Tonks, who was involved in the tackle on Neal, has been cleared of any wrong-doing by the Match Review Panel.

They concluded that Neal was taken to the ground legally, but there could have been a clash of heads.

Even though Gill and Neal were not involved last night — and there will be no dual-reg personnel this week — Naylor said he still had 23 players training.

He added:

“I’ve still got a good bunch of lads to choose from.”

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.
