The Roughyeds


Late fightback proves in vain

TRAILING 26-6 at Doncaster, Oldham staged a thrilling fightback to score 16 points in the last 11 minutes before falling just short and going down 26-22.

Roughyeds trailed 8-6 at half-time, Paul Crook having landed three penalty goals, but Doncaster got on top after Danny Langtree (Oldham) and Jordie Hedges (Doncaster) were sin-binned for squaring up to each other after an altercation.

The home side then scored three quick tries to seemingly wrap up the game before never-say-die Oldham rattled them with late tries by Langtree, Matt Reid and Dave Eccleston and two conversions by Luke Hooley and Dave Hewitt.

Time ran out on the visitors, however, who lost their third consecutive away game to slip from third to fifth in Betfred League 1.

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.
