The Roughyeds


Langtree, Bridge top forward try scorers

THE impact of second-row pair Danny Langtree and Danny Bridge in Oldham RLFC’s surge to third place in Betfred League 1 is reflected in the club’s current try-scoring list.

Centre Zack McComb, who scored a hat-trick in each of the last two games against Hemel Stags and West Wales Raiders, is out in front with eight.

Then come Bridge and Langtree on seven and six respectively, the former having overtaken his second-row buddy with a brace against Hemel and another against the Welshmen in Llanelli.

Surprisingly, ‘Langers’ didn’t score in either of those 70-plus walkovers, but he ‘made’ a few out on the right while the other Danny was terrorising the opposition on the left.

This twin strike force of wide-running second-rowers is regularly taking defences apart in a side that has strung together five league wins in a row and will be hoping to extend that run with another victory in their next match against fourth-placed Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday week, June 3 (kick-off 3pm).

One of the longest-serving players at the club, Langtree is enjoying a magnificent season — his best since Scott Naylor made him a first-team regular in 2013.

New-boy Bridge, in his first season with his home-town club, is more than fulfilling expectations in a similar job on the other side of the field, both in scoring tries and showing exemplary handling skills to assist others to do the same.

His link with centre Matt Reid is producing a lethal combination and one that promises to achieve much in the second part of the season.

Top tries to date: McComb 8, Bridge 7, Langtree 6, Hewitt 5, Joy 5, Reid 5, West 5, Eccleston 4, Johnson 3, Kershaw 3, Wilkinson 3.

Boss Naylor, meanwhile, has welcomed the opportunity to give his players a rest this week.

With a blank Sunday coming up, they’ve been given the week off and Naylor says it is well deserved.

“They’ve been putting in a lot recently,” he said, “and a little break will do them good.

“When we’ve previously given them a bit of time off they’ve come back with some extra zip. Our recent run of form has been very pleasing and I’m sure they’ll benefit from a break, if only to get away from me for a while !”

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.
