The Roughyeds


Naylor delighted with ‘brilliant’ Roughyeds

AS one would expect, Scott Naylor was hugely satisfied with the Roughyeds’ all-round show in a 32-12 win against Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium.

Before kick-off, injured non-playing prop Jack Spencer described this game as “massive to both clubs”.

Roughyeds had to win to keep hold of third place and victory never looked in doubt.

Said Naylor:

“It was a great team performance. One to 17 were awesome.

“It was a very important game for both clubs in the context of league placings and the season as a whole and it was probably our best all-round performance of the season so far.

“We had a dodgy spell of about ten to 15 minutes in the second half, but apart from that we were brilliant.

“We were aggressive and determined in everything we did and our defence was outstanding.

“They scored one try from close range and another from a long kick downfield in the last minute but for most of the game we were definitely in control.

“It’s a great day for our club and also for our chairman. We hope it will help his recovery.

“We must now kick-on, keep working hard and keep improving and if we do that we should be in the mix at the end of the season.”

His reference to club chairman Chris Hamilton was a reminder that the club’s owner is recovering and recuperating after major heart surgery last Tuesday.

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.
