The right result was what mattered most — Naylor

ASKED about his team’s overall performance in the 28-12 win over Newcastle Thunder, Oldham boss Scott Naylor said:

“After winning at Workington in the previous game, the right result was the most important thing for us in this one. I was pleased with the result.”

This was his side’s third Betfred League 1 win in a row and he was especially keen to win it because Hemel Stags and West Wales Raiders are next on the agenda so he will be targeting five wins in a row before his side has a weekend off at the end of May.

He added:

“For most of the game we were strong and solid. I was slightly disappointed with the two tries we let in during the second half, but I can’t be too disappointed because one of them was from a dropped ball and the other from a one-on-one.

“Overall, we never looked like losing. We were the stronger team. We were solid; we played it the right way; we took our chances; and we put Newcastle under a lot of pressure.

“There was enough evidence today to see that it will be a real tough game at their place later in the season.

“Today was a good day all-round for us — no injuries, two more league points, and lots of lads who are desperate to play, but who are waiting for game time.

“For all of us, it’s onwards and upwards to our next few games.”

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.
