The Roughyeds


What they said . . .

SCOTT Naylor

“I was very proud of the team’s performance. It showed that a lot in our game is right.

“For instance, they only scored one try from a play near our line which indicated that we did a lot right in that area (goal-line defence).

“The disappointing thing was in our yardage defence when we might have switched off a little bit, expecting kicks. They got us a couple of times on their last tackle with off-the-cuff stuff.

“At half-time we talked about completing, getting in the game with no penalties and going set-to-set with them.

“When we do that, and the game is flowing, we look a lot better and after 15 minutes of the second half we had conceded only one more try.

“We were tough, resilient and we put in a massive effort.

“The lads showed they wanted to play for each other and play for the club and that alone will take us a long way.

“The penalty count (15-8 to Rovers) weighed heavily against us. We were often conceding back-to-back penalties and you can’t do that against a Super League team.

“I would have liked to see us with a bit more chance to go at them, but we didn’t get that chance because of all the penalties against us. It was refereed at Super League level.

“Our commitment, effort and sheer hard work were all first class and I’m very proud of that.”

TIM Sheens

“We had been concentrating all week on our defence and our aim was not to concede a point. I would have been happy with a 2-0 result, the ‘nil’ being the important thing.

“It was a physical game and we were ready for it thanks to what we had done during the week.

“Credit to Oldham. They completed to a high rate, 93 per cent in the first half.

“We picked a strong side, but Oldham competed well and took the game to us. It was nothing fancy — down the middle and then a high kick — but we had to deal with it.

“In the later stages of the game it all got a little bit personal and we lost our way, but by then it all over as a contest.

“We won the penalty count . . . for the first time this year.”

CHRIS Hamilton:

“In a game like this it would have been easy for the lads to lose heart when things were going against them, as they did, but they never once let their heads drop and full credit to them for that.

“As Scott had said previously, there was no way Hull KR were going to be anything less than 100 per cent ready after what we did to them two years ago, but the effort and determination we showed was fantastic.

“We’re back to League 1 now and we face a tough game at Workington next up.

“We’ll have to be switched-on for that one, but we know we have a good squad and a good group of players, as has been shown yet again today.”

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.
