The Roughyeds


Kieran Gill set to boost Oldham ahead of Cumbrian trip

KIERAN Gill, on loan from Castleford Tigers, will be back in contention for Oldham’s tough trek to Workington Town on Sunday in Betfred League 1.

In his third stint with Roughyeds across three seasons, centre Gill (22) enjoyed a try-scoring first game back against Keighley Cougars, but missed the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie against Hull KR because of a sore knee cap.

The Keighley game was his first in ten months after major surgery to repair an anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

“Gilly is okay now and he’ll be available to us for weekend,” said delighted head coach Scott Naylor after last night’s training session.

He was less enthusiastic when asked if the side would benefit at Derwent Park from the dual-reg agreement with Salford Red Devils.

Ryan Lannon, Levy Nzoungou and Daniel Murray, who has just signed a new two-year contract to extend his stay with the Red Devils, have previously helped out in Betfred League 1 games this season.

Murray played at prop in the 32-18 win against Keighley but, not for the first time in league matches this year, dual-reg players will not be available to Naylor at Workington.

“Unfortunately, that is again the situation,” confirmed the Roughyeds boss.

A final decision on Adam Neal, who was concussed against Keighley and missed the Hull KR cup-tie, will be made later.

Everyone else is fit, including winger Ben West, who has been out since he was concussed at Bradford Bulls on Good Friday a month ago.

In the Workington Town camp it hasn’t yet been confirmed whether latest signing Fuifui Moimoi will be available to debut or whether he is still waiting for his visa to come through.

Centre Scott Akehurst, however, is out with a leg injury after being carried off in last week’s 20-12 home win against North Wales Crusaders.

Coached this season by Leon Pryce, Town have been signing experienced men with pedigrees, like Oliver Wilkes, Karl Olstrom, Fuifui Moimoi and Ryan Bailey, although Bailey has already moved on to Leigh Centurions after only three months at Derwent Park.

Former Oldham half-back Scott Leatherbarrow is also at Town, but he didn’t play against Crusaders last time out after substituting in the previous game when the Cumbrians lost 27-20 at Hunslet after letting a 12-point lead slip away in the final quarter.

Having won four of their seven games, including the home defeat of Bradford Bulls, they have two points more than Roughyeds, who have a game in hand

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.
