Hughes out with ankle trouble

KENNY Hughes, one of Oldham RL Club’s three hookers, has sustained an ankle injury in training which could keep him out for a couple of weeks.

He wasn’t able to train last night (Tues) and he will miss Sunday’s home game against London Skolars.

“He did it in training last week . . . that’s why he didn’t play at Coventry,”

said head coach Scott Naylor.

There was better news of prop Jack Spencer (back) and winger Dave Eccleston (knee), who both trained normally and are expected to be available for weekend.

That leaves only two players currently on the casualty list — Hughes and Adam Neal, who hasn’t played since he was concussed against Keighley in mid-April.

The boys and girls from Mayfield Primary School, Derker will be involved in a curtain-raiser on Sunday.

Also, scouts from Moorside will be having a bucket collection to raise funds for some of their group who have been selected to go to next year’s World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.

Club Cash Lottery

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: or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to:

he 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!
