Scott names same 19-man squad

​EXPECT few changes, if any, in the Oldham line-up against Newcastle Thunder at Kingston Park tomorrow (Sunday), kick-off 3pm.

Scott Naylor has named the same 19-man squad, having been impressed by the side that beat Whitehaven 20-0 at the Vestacare Stadium last Sunday.

Squad: Liam Bent, Craig Briscoe, Paul Crook, Ben Davies, David Eccleston, David Hewitt, Jack Holmes, Kyran Johnson, Phil Joy, Lee Kershaw, Danny Langtree, Zack McComb, Adam Neal, Luke Nelmes, Gareth Owen, Danny Rasool, Matt Reid, Jack Spencer, Matty Wilkinson.

Having lost three of their last four away games — at Hunslet, Keighley and Doncaster — Roughyeds will be determined to do better in the North-East, while Thunder will be keen to bounce back after a lack-lustre defeat at Keighley last week.

The Geordie boys have conceded that a top-five finish is now beyond them, but an Oldham win would take Roughyeds back to third if Workington Town go down against leaders Bradford Bulls at Odsal.

Please note that our next home game is on Sunday, September 2 when we host Coventry Bears at the Vestacare Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

Club Cash Lottery

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there's never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why ? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back -- not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It's back this week and it's been won first time out, so next week's jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order -- our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to:

he easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
