The Roughyeds


Six-try win at Workington – wow !

THANKS to an impressive all-round performance, built around three tries in each half, Oldham became the first Betfred League 1 side to win at Workington this season.

They didn’t only beat the Cumbrians, 32-10, they outplayed them all over the park to score first-half tries by by Liam Bent, Danny Langtree and Lee Kershaw and second half tries by Luke Hooley, Phil Joy and Dave Hewitt, with Paul Crook adding four goals.

Town went into an early 6-4 lead, but Roughyeds then rattled up 22 unanswered points to lead 26-6 going into the last quarter of an hour.

The tries by on-loan teenagers Kershaw and Hooley either side of half-time were especially impressive.

Kieran Gill looked class in the centre, but the whole performance was based on the fantastic work of the middle unit with outstanding efforts from Jack Spencer, Phil Joy, Liam Bent, Adam Jones and Luke Nelmes.

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.
