The Roughyeds


Cunningham in 19-man squad for Keighley

YOUNG hooker Jonah Cunningham, the dual-reg player from Leigh who scored a hat-trick of tries on his Oldham debut against West Wales Raiders, is again in Scott Naylor’s 19 for tonight’s (Fri) game at Keighley Cougars. (8pm kick-off).

There are two changes in the 19 from the West Wales game, Phil Joy and Steve Nield replacing dual-reg prop Jordan Dezaria, who picked up a shoulder injury, and Matt Reid.

Reid didn’t play against West Wales because of a sore groin but he was in the original 19.

Oldham (from): Bent, Bridge, Briscoe, Crook, Cunningham, Davies, Hewitt, Holmes, Hooley, Joy, Jones, Kershaw, McComb, Nelmes, Nield, Owen, Rasool, Spencer, West.

Roughyeds currently lie third in Betfred League 1 with 22 points from 16 games.

Workington and Hunslet have the same number of points, but Naylor’s men have a hugely superior for-and-against record compared with both of their nearest play-off rivals.

Oldham, in fact, can boast the second-best defensive record in the whole division; the fourth-best attacking record; and the third-best for-and-against difference.

Interestingly, one of the three teams which has scored more points than Roughyeds is Keighley — 600 against 598.

Where Oldham’s stats score heavily on Keighley’s is on points conceded — Oldham 188, Keighley 393.

Other League 1 games this weekend: London Skolars v York City Knights; Coventry Bears v Hemel Stags; Doncaster v West Wales Raiders; Hunslet v Bradford Bulls; Newcastle Thunder v North Wales Crusaders; Workington Town v Whitehaven.

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.
