Oldham still trying as signing deadline looms large

OLDHAM coach Scott Naylor hasn’t given up hope of strengthening his squad before today’s 5pm signing deadline.

“We are in touch with a few clubs and a few people and we’re hoping to do something in time,”

said the Roughyeds boss after last night’s training session.

Oldham go to Doncaster on Sunday (3pm) knowing they have to come to terms with the loss of second-row man Danny Bridge, who won’t play again this season because of his ninth-month suspension.

The good news is that injuries are clearing to the extent that only one player, Adam Jones, didn’t train last night.

He’s currently recovering from a back injury received at work.

Danny Langtree took a new knock near the end of his stunning, four-try comeback after a hamstring injury in the 50-6 win against North Wales Crusaders.

Naylor was upbeat and optimistic, however, about his chances for weekend.

He also confirmed that long-standing injury victims Adam Neal (concussion) and Kenny Hughes (ankle) would be ready to resume soon.

Front-row forward Neal has been out for three months, but he has now passed all his head-injury protocol tests and is on the verge of stepping back into the arena.

Said Naylor:

“He’s as close as he can be now. The final decision will rest with Adam. He won’t play at Doncaster, but he’s got every chance for next week or the week after that.

“As for Kenny, he trained last night and he’s also getting close.”

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.
