The Roughyeds


‘Langers’ in team of the month

​REGULAR Roughyeds fans won’t be surprised to learn that Danny Langtree is named in the latest ‘Rugby League World’ Betfred League 1 team of the month.

He’s listed in the second-row of a mythical side which reflects individual form over the past four weeks.

With 18 tries to his credit this season, the 27-year-old former St Helens junior is the Roughyeds’ highest-scoring forward in any one season since the formation of the ‘new’ Oldham club 21 years ago.

There are four games still to play in the regular league season and ‘Langers’ will be keen to add to his tally in tomorrow’s (Sunday) clash with Coventry Bears at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm kick-off).

He then has the opportunity to show what he can do against the top two teams in the division, York City Knights and Bradford Bulls, before the regular season comes to an end at London Skolars.

Roughyeds currently hold the last play-off spot but they may be required to win each of their remaining games to qualify for the promotion semi-final.

In his eighth season at the club Langtree will be a key man in that quest, having already done enough to cause coach Scott Naylor to say he is enjoying his best-ever year in the Roughyeds’ jersey.

Coventry, tomorrow’s opposition at the Vestacare, are also represented in the team of the month with the inclusion of Birmingham-born Hayden Freeman, a young winger.

York have four in the side, Workington Town three and Bradford Bulls two.

Team of the month: Sam Forrester (Workington); Hayden Freeman (Coventry), Joe Batchelor (York), Jason Mossop (Whitehaven), Ethan Ryan (Bradford); Jamie Doran (Workington), Ben Cockayne (York); Jack Ormondroyd (York), Sean Penkywicz (Workington), Steve Crossley (Bradford), Brad England (Doncaster), Danny Langtree (OLDHAM), Joel Edwards (York).

Roary Competition

Young Oldham fans who entered the Roary colouring competition are urged to return their masterpieces at tomorrow’s game when a box will be placed for them near the turnstiles.

At half-time a presentation will be made to club chaplain Tony Ford who will be attending his last game before taking charge of a church in Barrow.

Tony has been our chaplain for eight years and we owe him and his family a great debt of gratitude.

The club shop will be open from 2pm and the latest issue of Roughyed Review, our 24-page bulletin of club news and views, carries a two-page picture special of our club trip to Wembley last Saturday.

Illustrated in colour with loads of pictures by Dave Murgatroyd and Dave Naylor, the Review is well worth a read.

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.
