Trinity twosome in Oldham’s big-match 19

LUKE Hooley and Lee Kershaw, for whom new loan deals with Wakefield Trinity were agreed this week, are named in Oldham’s provisional 19-man squad for tomorrow’s (Sun) big game with Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Winger Kershaw (19), who scored three tries in four games for Roughyeds earlier in the season, is back on a one-month loan.

Full-back Hooley, also 19, has had a week-to-week agreement extended to season long.

Goal-kicking half-back Paul Crook, rested for the last game at West Wales Raiders, is back in the running, as is prop Gavin Bennion, on dual-reg from Salford Red Devils.

Doncaster’s 19 includes two loan men and three on dual-reg — five young players in total from Hull FC.

Roughyeds, by comparison, can draw on two loanees, Hooley and Kershaw, and one dual-reg man in Bennion.

Bennion (24), a Welsh international, came through the ranks at Warrington Wolves before enjoying successful loan spells with Halifax, Swinton and Rochdale.

It was on the strength of his performances for Rochdale in the Championship last year that he became a full-time member of Salford’s Super League squad in 2018.

Oldham squad: Bent, Bennion, Bridge, Briscoe, Crook, Hewitt, Hooley, Holmes, Hughes, Johnson, Jones, Joy, Kershaw, Langtree, Nelmes, Owen, Reid, West, Wilkinson.

Roughyeds, who are going for their sixth league win in a row, are hoping this third v fourth clash will attract one of their best crowds of the season so far. Doncaster also expect to have a decent away following.

Like Oldham, they have made no secret of their intentions to win promotion this year.

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.
