The Roughyeds


Joe (11) wins our picture competition

WE are delighted to announce the winner of the competition in which fans were invited to take action shots on their mobile phones at the home game against West Wales Raiders on July 8.

There was a healthy response from many fans and some of the best entries were used in the 24-page, full-colour match magazine, Roughyed Review, which was on sale at the match against North Wales Crusaders on July 22.

The winning entry was selected by members of the club’s media team, Roger Halstead, Dave Murgatroyd and Dave Naylor plus Anne Kearns, who is running the office during chairman Chris Hamilton’s absence on sick leave after major heart surgery.

The winning picture was of Ben West crossing the line and preparing to score one of our record-breaking 18 tries in a 102-6 win.

It was submitted by 11-year-old Joe Snape, a junior season-ticket holder, whose prize will take him into the hospitality suite with two adults at the home game against Coventry Bears on September 2.

He will be away on holiday when we play Whitehaven at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday, August 12, so his big day will be at the Coventry game when he will be photographed with Roary on the pitch at half-time.

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
