FANCY going behind the scenes and seeing what it’s REALLY like to be an Oldham player on game day ?
Now’s your chance . . . courtesy of an ORSA raffle with a difference which has four prizes, all based on a Roughyeds’ rugby theme.
Tickets, costing £1 a strip, will be on sale inside the Vestacare Stadium when Leon Pryce’s Workington Town are here on Sunday.
Winners can, if they prefer, opt for an alternative prize such as a bottle of wine, but ORSA officials believe lots of fans will love to win one of these four major prizes:
- A match-day experience for one, sharing dressing room and dug-out and maybe acting as water carrier before dining with players after a game, to be mutually agreed with Scott.
- BECOME the club and team mascot at a game this season, to be arranged.
- WIN two places for match-day hospitality and be presented with a signed ball.
- GO home with a Roughyeds shirt and a ball, both signed by Adam Neal.
The four lucky winners will be announced by John Davies over the public address system on Sunday and invited into the hospitality suite after the game to sort out their prizes.
Holder of the first ticket to be drawn out will choose one of the four prizes and the second winner will select from the remaining three, and so on.
It is relevant to point out that the offer of the ‘match-day experience’ prize followed discussions between ORSA and Scott, who is keen to have his players involved with supporters on community initiatives like this, as and when appropriate.
Scott and the players value and appreciate the support they get from ORSA (Oldham Roughyeds Supporters Association), who in turn rely on the backing of fans to go about their business.You can join ORSA for £10 a year subscription or back the association in several ways (see John McAndrew or Sheila or Grant Somerville) but, more immediately, get your raffle tickets on Sunday and before the season is out you could be in dressing room and dug-out, getting to the very heart of being an Oldham player.
