The Roughyeds


Big win — okay performance.

​SCOTT Naylor was pleased with the 58-6 win against Coventry Bears . . . but not entirely happy with the level of performance.

It was okay,” he said. “I would give it six out of ten.

Despite ten tries and a big score, Roughyeds made hard work of it at times and were guilty of a few lapses that some opponents would punish heavily.

Said Naylor:

“We still need to do a lot of improving before our next two games against York and Bradford.

“You can get away with mistakes against some teams, but not against the top two sides in our division.

“That was exactly why we lost at Newcastle, where we invited them back into the game.

“It’s not a major problem, nor is it a technical one. It’s stuff we can fix up, but we have to do it before next week and then hopefully we’ll move forward in terms of play-off qualification.

“A win’s a win ! But we’ll need to play a lot better in the next couple of weeks.”

Naylor said his side got through without injury and the only doubt for the game against table-topping York on Sunday would be full-back Kyran Johnson, who missed the Coventry game with a damaged shoulder and AC joint.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
