The Roughyeds


Everyone who came into the side did well — Scott

IT wasn’t a nip-and-tuck game to start Scott Naylor’s pulse racing, but the Oldham boss, as you would expect, was pleased with his side’s “professional job” in beating Hemel Stags 74-6.

Stags went into an early 6-0 lead, but Roughyeds quickly recovered their composure to score 13 tries and 11 goals and produce their biggest winning margin in more than eight years.

Said Scott:

“I’m pleased with the result, obviously. We did a professional job, but there is always a danger lurking in a game this this; there’s a big temptation for players to go away from structure and, instead, to start making things up as they go along.

“That’s usually when things go wrong, but in the main we stuck to what we had been doing in training and that stood us in good stead.

“I thought everyone who came into the side did very well. Gareth Owen looked good at half-back and that was very pleasing.

“Taken all round it was a good performance. We did what we were expected to do.

“It wasn’t an inspirational game but you can only do what you have to do. That we did that, achieving what we set out to do, is beyond question.

“Because of the way the fixtures have dropped we’ve had a difficult start to the season, so we needed to make up ground in our ‘for and against’ stats by scoring some points and by playing some nice, expansive rugby.

“It was good for the fans to see some good rugby and some good tries.”

Added chairman Chris Hamilton:

“We could easily have topped 100 points. We were a bit sloppy at times in the first half but in the main we played good rugby, scored some great tries and did what we had to do.

“To come into the side, score three tries, carry the ball strongly and do his tackling like he did, Zack McComb did a great job.

“I was going to award Luke Nelmes with Magic Moment because of his first try, but his second was even better. He’s a big man with a big heart, all arms and elbows, not the sort of opponent you would want running straight at you if you were defending.”

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!
