The Roughyeds


We need to be tough – and good – Scott

SCOTT Naylor has named the boxes Oldham need to tick if they are to succeed where Bradford Bulls failed and return from Workington on Sunday with two precious league points in the bag.

“We’ve got to be tough, physically and mentally, and we’ve got to be good in the way we play,”

said the Roughyeds boss, as he targets a second win in Cumbria this season, following the 14-0 victory at Whitehaven on the opening day of the Betfred League 1 campaign.

The squad came through the demanding Challenge Cup tie against Hull KR with no injury concerns, but Naylor is still waiting for definitive updates on two who didn’t play in that one, Adam Neal and on-loan Kieran Gill.

Both were hurt in the 32-18 home win against Keighley Cougars, prop Neal suffering a concussion and centre Gill having trouble with a knee cap.

“I’m hoping both will be okay, but at this stage I don’t know,”

said Naylor after last night’s training session.

“On Kieran I’m waiting to hear an update from Castleford and I’ll know more about Adam at Thursday’s training session.”

Of the task that awaits Roughyeds in Cumbria at weekend, he added:

“The long journey doesn’t help so we need to get off early and arrive in plenty of time, get switched-on mentally and physically and be ready for a tough game.

“They beat the Bulls up there so they’ve shown they can be a match for anyone in this division.

“Like both Cumbrian teams, they play better at home than away, but they do tend to be inconsistent at times.

“Whenever you go to Workington though you know it’s going to be tough, but there’s no reason we can’t beat them although we’ll have to play well.

“We won at Whitehaven and there’s no reason why we can’t complete a Cumbrian double.”

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.
