Fans’ pics in Roughyed Review

NINE of the best 40 mobile-phone action shots from the Oldham v West Wales Raiders game, submitted by fans, are reproduced in our latest Roughyed Review which will be on sale at the Vestacare Stadium tomorrow (Sunday).

The winning pic (judged by members of the Roughyeds’ media team) will come from these nine and will be announced next week on the club website and social media feeds.

Prize for the winner is a pair of tickets for a remaining home game this season or, if won by a season-ticket holder, two places in the hospitality suite.

Our 24-page, full colour match-day magazine also contains columns by Scott Naylor and Anne Kearns; Fans Focus (is it YOU ?); George Cowburn’s look back at the night Oldham gunned down the Cowboys from Australia; club captain Gareth Owen’s ‘we won’t be fazed’ promise to fans; the Oldham HeritageTrust’s pictorial reminder of days gone by; Dave Naylor’s player stats and spotlight on our visitors; ORSA news; how to acquire a copy of Craig Halstead’s latest Roughyeds’ book; and much more.

From 2pm on game day you can even get the Oldham line-up by scanning the QR code on the back cover.

All this for £3. Get the Roughyed Review tomorrow to enhance your game-day experience at the Vestacare.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
