The Roughyeds


Eighteen tries and record win

OLDHAM posted an all-time club record win against bottom-of-the-table West Wales Raiders — achieved, ironically, in front of an all-time lowest attendance of 274.

The score, 102-6, beat the Roughyeds’ previous best of 80-6 against another team from South Wales, Blackwood, in the 2010 Challenge Cup competition.

Dave Hewitt’s eight goals and three tries gave him 28 points, but he fell six short of the individual points record in a match, held jointly at 34 by Andy Ballard (2009), Chris Baines (2009) and Lewis Palfrey (2015).

Oldham led 50-6 at half-time; scored nine tries in each half; and had outstanding individuals in four-try full-back Luke Hooley and hat-trick try scorers in dual-reg hooker Jonah Cunningham and Hewitt.

Other try scorers were Jack Holmes (2), Jack Spencer, Jordan Dezaria, Lee Kershaw, Zack McComb (2) and Ben West.

Paul Crook kicked seven first-half conversions but spent the second half on the bench with Hewitt taking over as marksman and converting every chance by one.

The win takes Oldham back to third place.

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.
