Win a prize with a mobile-phone action shot

CALLING all Roughyeds fans who fancy themselves as a dab hand at taking live images on mobile phones.

Because Dave Murgatroyd is on hols and Dave Naylor will be up on the gantry filming the official match video, the club will be minus a club photographer at Sunday’s game against West Wales Raiders at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Murgy, however, came up with an idea to kill two birds with one stone to throw the photographer’s job open to fans and at the same time to involve supporters in a spot of photographic fun with a prize at the end of it for the best action shot taken.

Due to RFL rules and regulations and ground-safety issues there have to be certain restrictions though.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN FANS ENCROACH BEYOND THE BOUNDARY WALL AND TAKE UP POSITION INSIDE THE WALL AND ON THE TOUCHLINE.

SECONDLY, YOU CAN ONLY USE YOUR MOBILE PHONE; USE OF CAMERAS IS NOT PERMITTED UNLESS YOU ARE A CLUB OR MEDIA PHOTOGRAPHER WITH OFFICIAL RFL ACCREDITATION.

You can submit up to five images apiece (instructions below) and the club’s media team will judge which, in their opinion, is the best.

The media-team decision will be binding and final.

The prize will be two tickets for a home game of your choice between now and the end of the season.

If the winning entry goes to a season-ticket holder he or she can take up an option of two places in the hospitality suite at a remaining home game this season, to be arranged in advance.

So come to Sunday’s game armed with your mobiles and take your pics . . . it should be a whole lot of fun !

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.
