The Roughyeds


Leaders York given massive fright

​NEVER-SAY-DIE Oldham gave Betfred League 1 leaders York City Knights a massive second-half fright before going down 10-6 in a gripping contest at Bootham Crescent.

The Knights edged the first half to lead 10-0 at half time, but Roughyeds dominated the second period and had a Luke Hooley try disallowed for obstruction before Jack Holmes crossed on a Hooley pass with nine minutes left.

Hooley added the goal points and the visitors then laid siege on the Knights line in search of the equalising try.

It was fierce, unrelenting stuff by two of the best defensive teams in the division but he Knights hung on although they looked out on their feet at the end.

Scott Naylor’s men ran out of time to slip to yet another close defeat — their eighth in nine losses — although they looked the stronger, fresher side in the closing stages.

They did the club proud, but there are now three clubs on 30 points and to be sure of sticking hold of a play-off spot Roughyeds will have to beat Bradford Bulls at the Vestacare Stadium next Sunday and London Skolars away on Saturday week.

Win both those and they’ll be in the play-offs, lose one of them and they’ll probably miss out.

It’s going to be a bumpy ride so hang on to your seat belts !

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.
