Hull KR tie at Bower Fold

OLDHAM have announced that their fifth-round Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie against Hull KR will take place at Bower Fold, Stalybridge, on Sunday, April 22 with a 3pm kick-off.

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton:

“A big thank-you goes to Rob Gorski, chairman of Stalybridge Celtic, for accommodating us at Bower Fold, which we know so well and where we have always felt at home.

“We like playing there and we are looking forward to going back and putting on a good show.

“Hopefully, the people of Oldham will get behind the lads in numbers after our great fourth-round win at Halifax and help us to turn the Hull KR tie into a groundhog day.”

That’s a reference to the day two years ago when Roughyeds went to Hull KR in the same competition and won to pull off one of the biggest Challenge Cup upsets of all time.

Admission prices at Bower Fold will be as follows:

STANDING: Adults £14, concessions £12, Juniors (under-16s) £2.

SITTING: Adults £16, concessions £14, juniors (under-16s) £5.

Hospitality is available at £35 a head and advance match tickets will be on sale early next week, full details to follow on Monday.

Junior season-ticket holders will get in FREE, but they will need to obtain a ticket in advance from the Oldham RLFC office at the Vestacare Stadium, times etc to be announced early next week.

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!
