The Roughyeds


ORSA quiz night on Thursday

ORSA (Oldham Roughyeds’ Supporters’ Association) break new ground on Thursday (April 5) when they stage their first supporters’ Quiz Night of the season at the Vestacare Stadium, 8pm start.

Most of their similar events in recent seasons have taken place in conjunction with Higginshaw ARLFC, but on this occasion ORSA are returning home to the refurbished Avro FC club at the Vestacare Stadium on a night when the Roughyeds players will be training at the same venue.

Fans can enter the quiz for a nominal £1 and up for grabs will be a £200 jackpot prize.

ORSA, who sponsor tackling-machine Liam Bent, work closely with head coach Scott Naylor and his backroom team in providing the squad with match-day materials and other aids. In recent weeks they’ve also helped to fund training sessions at outside venues.

Membership costs £10 a year and fans can download a membership form or speak to Grant Somerville, the secretary, on (01706) 844810.

Two Home Games

Having played only two of their six games so far in cup and league at the Vestacare, and on the road at Whitehaven, Halifax, North Wales and Bradford, Scott Naylor’s men now look forward to consecutive Betfred League 1 games at home against Hunslet and Keighley Cougars.

Hunslet visit this Sunday, April 8, and Keighley follow a week later on April 15.

Roughyeds have also been drawn at home to Hull KR in the fifth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup on Sunday, April 22, but this big cup clash against Super League opposition will have to be played away from the Vestacare which doesn’t meet minimum requirements for a game of this stature.

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.
