The Roughyeds


Scott looking for ‘momentum’

WITH Danny Langtree and Adam Neal back to their best after injury, Oldham will be looking for their fourth win in five games at Newcastle Thunder.

They’ll also be aiming for their third win in a row after victories at Hemel Stags (60-28) and at home against Whitehaven, where they produced one of their best all-round performances of the season to prevail 20-0.

Langtree’s try took his total for the season to 18 — the best by any Roughyeds forward since the formation of Oldham RLFC (1997) Ltd 21 years ago.

Said coach Scott Naylor:

“Thunder will be looking to bounce back after going down at Keighley last week so we expect a very tough test.

“With five games left it’s all about gathering momentum.

“It would be nice to go into the break (a weekend off for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final at Wembley) on the back of three wins in a row, but we are well aware that Thunder will have something to say about that.”

Roughyeds will pick from a full-strength squad with the exception of the suspended Danny Bridge.

Thunder, lying ninth with 20 points, have conceded that the top five has passed them by, but say they are determined to finish the season strongly as preparation for 2019 when they intend to have a serious crack at promotion from Betfred League 1.

Their squad will show several changes from the side that was beaten 28-12 at the Vestacare Stadium on May 6, most notably with the inclusion of French international scrum-half Remy Marginet, who made his Thunder debut three weeks after their defeat at Oldham.

With seven French caps, Marginet is one of the most experienced players in Betfred League 1.

Coach Jason Payne will pick from this 19-man squad:

Harry Aldous, Jack Aldous, Mo Agoro, Sam Blake, Adam Brook, Jed Charlton, Tyler Craig, Ben Dent, Connor Fitzsimmons, Sam Luckley, Remy Marginet, Liam McAvoy, Aaron Ollett, Vincent Rennie, Liam Richmond, Theerapol Ritson, Liam Scott, Evan Simons, Lewis Young.

Charlton, a teenage forward who has come through the Thunder academy, will be making his senior debut.

Said Payne:

“It hasn’t been the season we hoped it would be, but we are hoping to finish strongly, have some fun and have a dig.

“We looked tired at Keighley and, for the very first time, I had cause to question our attitude, so we are looking for a big response in this one.”

The game kicks off at 3pm at Kingston Park, Newcastle.

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.
