Rasool out with knee injury

​DANNY Rasool couldn’t train last night (Thursday) because of the knee injury he picked up against Coventry Bears, so he isn’t available for Oldham’s big game against Betfred League 1 leaders York City Knights at Bootham Crescent on Sunday (3pm).

There was better news, however, of Kyran Johnson, who has recovered from a shoulder problem, trained normally and will be in the selection mix.

“Danny (Rasool) was the only one who didn’t train so I’ll be picking from 23 and I’ll be making some changes,”

said head coach Scott Naylor.

The 23 will comprise of the 17 who were on duty for the Coventry game last Sunday, minus Rasool, plus Johnson, Dave Eccleston, Matt Reid, Steven Nield, Dave Hewitt, Liam Bent and Zack McComb.

Asked if the players were ready for one of their biggest games, and toughest tests, of the year, Naylor said:

“They certainly are.

“They’re a good bunch of lads and they’ve trained well all week.

“We’ve got by far the third best for-and-against points record in the division and there’s nothing to speak of between York’s defensive figures and ours.

“Our overall figures are top-three figures and that’s a big positive.

“We are down in fifth because we haven’t taken chances to finish teams off and we haven’t won a close game all season.

“Let’s hope the first is on Sunday.”

Bradford Tickets

FANS are reminded that tickets for next week’s game against Bradford Bulls at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm) will be on sale from Monday to Friday next week between 10am and 3pm, cash or cheque only.

The game is NOT all-ticket but seat tickets are limited and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

Standing tickets are on sale to avoid congestion at the turnstiles which open at 1pm.

The other thing to note is that you can only get into the social club from INSIDE the ground.


FANS are also asked to sign up for OuRLeague, for FREE, because future RFL funding will hinge to some degree on the number of OuRLeague members we have.

When signing up please make sure you let it known you support Oldham.

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.
