Oldham waiting for Adam Neal’s head test

PROP Adam Neal’s chances of playing in Sunday’s Challenge Cup clash with Hull KR at Bower Fold (3pm) will remain in the balance for the next few days.

Having been the victim of a tackle that was placed on report in Oldham’s 32-18 win against Keighley Cougars, the front-row man is currently going through the RFL’s back-to-play protocol for players who have suffered concussion or head injuries.

“He won ‘t have his head test until Saturday so we won’t know anything until then,” said coach Scott Naylor.

“A couple of the other lads have niggles, but nothing that will keep them out on Sunday.

“Luke Hooley, Lee Kershaw and Keiran Gill, our three loan lads, are all available — thanks to their parent clubs for that — so if they came through the Keighley game okay I should have a big squad to pick from.”

The next training session is tomorrow (Thursday) night when supporters are invited to attend between 6pm and 7.30pm at the Vestacare Stadium to see the players preparing for the big match and to have pictures taken with the Challenge Cup.

All those in attendance will have the opportunity to be entered into a draw for a star prize —- a ticket for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final at Wembley on August 25 plus FREE executive travel to Wembley and back.

Boys and girls under the age of 16 can also enter a competition to become the team’s mascot on Sunday, leading the team out on to the pitch alongside the captain.

For full details go to the Roughyeds website.

Looking ahead to the tie, Scott Naylor said:

“Rovers won’t take us lightly. They won’t want THAT to happen again (a reference to Oldham’s 36-22 win at Craven Park in 2016) so it’s going to be extremely tough.

“All the pressure is on them, though. There’s none on us, other than what we put on ourselves.

“They’re a Super League club and rightly so. It’s good to have two Super League teams in Hull.

“They’re a different team to the one we played two years ago so we know it will be very tough, but what’s the point of playing rugby if you don’t want to challenge yourself ?”

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.
