The Roughyeds


Who’s in the hot-seat ?

WANT to know who’s in charge while Chris Hamilton is on sick leave ?

Compiled by Roger Halstead and Dave Naylor, our 24-page, full-colour programme will hold its own with anything in League 1 and a lot in the Championship.

And the issue for the London Skolars game tomorrow — good value at £3 — has extra spice because it reveals who is in the hot seat while club chairman Chris Hamilton rests and recuperates after major heart surgery.

His stand-in has a lot to say — and it’s both punchy and positive.

You can also read Scott Naylor; discover why a fan had a tear in his eye at one match; look back in time with George Cowburn; mourn the passing of Eric Fitzsimons; and learn about our curtain-raisers, the boys and girls of Mayfield Primary, Derker.

With action shots from the great game against Doncaster; the Oldham RL Heritage Trust’s contribution; a section on Skolars and much more, the Roughyed Review is well worth a try.

We welcome Mayfield Primary and hope they enjoy their afternoon out at the Vestacare Stadium.

And we hope our fans will support the 127th Moorside Scout Group’s bucket collection in aid of their members who have been chosen to represent Gt Manchester in next year’s World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.

Each member has to raise £4,000 to cover the cost of the trip. As the town’s senior rugby league club we are happy to help in any way we can.

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.
