Scott welcomes new boys from Trinity

SCOTT Naylor has welcomed the arrival on loan of Wakefield Trinity backs Luke Hooley and Lee Kershaw, who link up with Roughyeds tomorrow (Thurs) night.

He said:

“We needed more backs and we now have more competition generally in the backs and specifically on the wing, which is something we didn’t really have.

“With a bit of luck Ben West should have come through his back-to-play protocol by weekend (for players who have suffered head injuries and concussion) so I’ll have some selection decisions to make.”

Full-back Hooley (19) and winger Kershaw (18) will be in contention with all other members of the squad for Sunday’s home game against Keighley Cougars (3pm) and it has already been established that they will be available for selection against Hull KR at Bower Fold on Sunday week, April 22, in the fifth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

They have each signed initially on a month’s loan.

Added Scott:

“It’s good of Wakefield to help us out and I would like to thank them.

“Luke Hooley played for us in the Championship at the back end of last season and he was very good. We know what he is capable of and, from his point of view, he will be very comfortable with us, having been here before.

“Lee Kershaw comes highly recommended by Wakefield, who are confident he will do a good job for us.”

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
