Oldham RLFC

The Roughyeds


All fit and ready to go

SCOTT Naylor has confirmed that apart from his four suspended players — Danny Bridge, Luke Hooley, Ben Davies and Luke Nelmes — every other member of his squad will be available for selection for Sunday’s Betfred League 1 semi-final play-off clash at Bradford Bulls.

He will, therefore, name his early 19-man squad from those who played in the 46-18 win at London Skolars, minus Hooley, Davies and Nelmes plus Dave Eccleston, Steven Nield, Adam Jones, Danny Rasool, Liam Bent, Zack McComb and Ben West.

As you would expect, main topic of chat and banter at last night’s (Thurs) training session was Danny Langtree’s elevation to the highest level with Hull FC on a two-year deal, starting next season.

His pending departure will merely add to the squad’s big-match motivation and its collective determination to be as good as it can possibly be.

Said Scott:

“When we played Bulls at home in the league I didn’t think there was a lot between us apart from that 15-minute spell before half-time when we had that blip that was to cost us heavily.

“We can take a lot of confidence from the fact that, first with 12 men and then down to 10, we kept them scoreless in the second half.

“The thing about Bradford is that they have a very large squad so they are inevitably very strong off the bench.

“They rested eight men the week before they played us at the Vestacare and they did the same thing again last Sunday.

“They’ll be starting strong and fresh, while we’ll be starting without three suspended players who were given cards the last time we played Bradford a week or two ago.

“That’s a setback, but its not something we are not used to handling. We’ve been doing it all season.

“Everybody expects things to go according to Bradford’s plan, but I know who will be the more nervous if we reach the hour mark and there’s not much between the teams.

“It will be interesting to see what happens if things don’t go according to plan.

“We just need the referee to be strong and to give us a fair crack of the whip.”

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.
