Scott looks forward to Hunslet after eight straight wins

SCOTT Naylor was delighted with the 44-12 result . . . but not quite so pleased with Oldham’s 80-minute performance against London Skolars.

The best of the southern teams by far, Skolars were only six points down for the best part of half an hour spread across the half-time interval.

Roughyeds set off like a house on fire to go 12-0 up in six minutes, but then they lost their way a bit and it required a late sprint to the finishing line to see off the visitors’ brave challenge.

Said Scott:

“The score (44-12) was probably what a lot of people expected. We didn’t.

“London are a much better side than this score suggests and they gave us a tougher game than some of the recent ones we’ve had.

“We started strongly, but we let them back in it by conceding penalties and consequently field position.

“Skolars can punish you if you do that so this performance shows that we still have a lot to learn.

“We kicked on in the last 25 minutes, scoring some nice tries. Also, we stopped conceding penalties and giving away field position and that made all the difference.

“We had Ben Davies playing only his second game of the season; Dave Eccleston back from injury; Jack Spencer back from injury. It was good they got some game time.

“We now look forward to the Hunslet game. In the league they were the last side to beat us way back on April 8. That defeat still stings.

“They are a good team, especially at home, and we’ll have to be at our best in every department.

“We are now at the half-way stage of the campaign, exactly, and we’re nicely positioned to do well in the second half, given that we’ve won eight league games in a row and we’re in third position.

“We are four points better off than Doncaster now, but we need to keep putting points on the board and we need to carry on winning.”

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.
