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.

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.
