The Roughyeds


Hunslet storm through on the rails to win 24-16.

ON a bitterly-disappointing afternoon at the Vestacare Stadium, Oldham led 16-6 midway through the second half before allowing Hunslet to score 18 unanswered points in quarter of an hour.

The side from south Leeds won 24-16 to inflict the Roughyeds’ third defeat in five Betfred League 1 outings —not the record of a side with promotion aspirations.

Dave Hewitt scored the only try of the first half shortly before half-time and Paul Crook’s conversion gave the home side a 6-0 interval lead.

Early in the second half Danny Langtree scored again when following Paul Crook’s chip to the line andc Crook’s easy conversion made it 12-0.

Left-wing Niall Walker kept Hunslet in the game with a try in the corner, which Joe Sanderson converted off the touchline.

When Hewitt got his second and Oldham went 16-6 up it would have taken a brave man to back against the home side.

They should have scored again when Craig Briscoe lost the ball crossing under the sticks.

And Hunslet then responded with tries by Duane Straugher, Walker and Jack Blagbrough, all converted by Sanderson, between minutes 62 and 77.

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.
