'Langers' hopes to boost Roughyeds

SCOTT Naylor reported after last night’s training session that Oldham came relatively unscathed through Sunday’s 50-6 win against North Wales Crusaders.

Four-try Danny Langtree took a knock in the closing stages, but he is expected to be ready and raring to go again by weekend.

Third in Betfred League 1, Roughyeds go to sixth-placed Doncaster (3pm, Sunday), who are only two points behind them, although Naylor’s men have a vastly-superior for-and-against record.

With the two Cumbrian clubs on the same number of points and breathing down their neck, Oldham must win at Doncaster to be sure of keeping hold of third place.

“The good news is that everyone should be available apart from Adam Neal (concussion), Adam Jones (back injury) and the suspended Danny Bridge,” said Naylor.

That would mean Kyran Johnson and two hookers, Matty Wilkinson and Kenny Hughes, putting up their hands after injury, Hughes having been out with an ankle problem for several weeks.

Roughyeds beat Doncaster 32-12 at the Vestacare Stadium on June 3, but after last week’s 30-14 win at Hunslet, Richard Horne’s Donny will be full of confidence that they can reverse the result at the Vestacare Stadium.


Don’t forget the Orsa Quiz Night tomorrow (Thurs), which starts at 8pm at the Vestacare Stadium.

Club Cash Lottery

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

he 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!
