‘Langers’ set for club try-scoring record

HAVING scored four tries against North Wales Crusaders to take his total for the season to 14, Danny Langtree needs only two more to smash Tommy Goulden’s 15, the best for a specialist second-row forward since the birth of the ‘new’ Oldham club in 1997.

Goulden’s best was set in 2008. ‘Langers’ came within one try of matching it in 2014 and now he is again on the verge of becoming the current club’s most prolific scoring second-rower in any given season.

Roughyeds wish to remind fans that their last game of the regular season at London Skolars will be played on Saturday, September 22 (3pm kick-off) and not on the Sunday.

Early arrivals for Thursday’s ORSA Quiz Night at the Vestacare Stadium (8pm) will be able to watch the squad training for Sunday’s Betfred League 1 clash at Doncaster.

Entry to the quiz costs £1 and among the prizes is a jackpot of £200.

ORSA membership costs £10 for the year –speak to Sheila Somerville 01706 844810 or John McAndrew 0161 633 1791 — but you don’t have to be a member to attend the quiz and get a taste of what ORSA (Oldham Roughyeds Supporters Association) is all about.

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.
