The Roughyeds


Oldham on squad-strengthening mission

SCOTT Naylor has confirmed that Oldham are in the market for new players because Roughyeds are not getting dual-registration assistance from Salford Red Devils.

“We’re hoping to move very quickly,” said head coach Naylor, currently battling against a long injury list.

Following narrow defeats by Hunslet away (16-12) and Workington at home (16-14), Naylor is keen to get back to winning ways in Sunday’s game against bottom-club West Wales Raiders, also at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Latest addition to the casualty list is full-back Kyran Johnson, who twisted an ankle against Workington and is said to be doubtful for weekend.

Adam Neal, who has been out since he was badly concussed against Keighley in April, has been told in his latest visit to the specialist that he must continue to follow head-injury protocol for at least two more weeks.

Danny Bridge and Matty Wilkinson, who both collected head injuries against Workington, will be re-examined at the weekend.

Phil Joy is doubtful with a rib injury, while Danny Langtree (hamstring) and Kenny Hughes (ankle) are continuing with rehab and will be assessed again next week.

Said Naylor:

“Everything has come all at once.

“We’ve had to go into the market to try to boost the squad with two or three players because of the lack of dual-reg personnel from Salford over much of the season and the affect that will have on us further down the line.

“We won’t have any dual-reg available to us for the last eight or nine games of the season because nobody will have played enough games for us earlier in order to qualify for the back end.

“We need to move quickly to bring players in, but there’s nothing specific to report yet.”

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.
