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.”

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.
