Groundhog Day cup-tie tickets now on sale

TICKETS for Oldham’s ‘Groundhog Day’ Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fifth-round tie against Hull KR at Bower Fold, Stalybridge on Sunday, April 22 (3pm) will be on sale from the Roughyeds office inside the Vestacare Stadium from 9.30am to 3pm tomorrow (Friday, April 13).

They will then be on sale again during the same times from Monday to Friday inclusive next week.

Prices are as follows:

Standing: adults £14, concessions £12, under-16s £2

Sitting: adults £16, concessions £14, under-16s £5

Note — the match is not all ticket and there will be cash turnstiles on the day. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance in order to ease any congestion at the ground.

Junior season-ticket holders get in FREE but they need to go to the club office during the above times and swop ticket voucher ‘A’ from their season-ticket books for a match ticket.

Hospitality, which includes a two-course pre-match buffet, is available at £35 a head.

It also includes use of a private pay bar, pre-match interviews with big-match personnel, light refreshments at half-time and post-match presentations to Oldham’s man of the match and champagne-moment winner.

All telephone inquiries, regarding cup-tie tickets or hospitality, to 07904 898177.

As part of the build-up to the big game, which rekindles memories of our great Challenge Cup win at Hull KR two years ago, the iconic Challenge Cup itself will be on show at the Vestacare Stadium between 6pm and 7.30pm next Thursday, April 19 while the Oldham players are training.

Fans can have photographs taken with the famous trophy and also take the opportunity to watch the players preparing for their big challenge against the Rovers’ Super League stars.

Chairman Chris Hamilton said:

“It isn’t every day that fans can look at the Challenge Cup at close quarters, or have pictures taken with it, so we are hoping as many as possible will get down next Thursday night,”

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
