Supporters Direct Community Champion Award

To celebrate the important role that fans play, Supporters Direct are proud to announce the continuation of the Supporters Direct Community Champion Award in association with the Rugby Football League (RFL). The award will be presented at the Betfred Championship and League 1 Gala Dinner to be held in September.

Supporters Direct are looking for fans that go above and beyond the call of duty this season, those who support their team through adversity or work to benefit the community and this year we have started our search early after the overwhelming amount of entries we received for the 2017 award.

The 2018 SD Rugby League Community Champion and their guest will be invited to attend the gala dinner at the prestigious Principle Hotel in Manchester and will be presented with their award in front of a star-studded audience.

Last year’s winner, Ray Abbey was a worthy one, nominated many times over from all corners of the game. Not only did Ray prove to be a magnificent ambassador for the sport, but also for the many community projects he willingly gives his limited spare time to. A true gentleman, respected throughout Rugby League, who thoroughly deserved to be honoured with the award.

Rugby Football League Chief Executive, Ralph Rimmer said: “It’s fantastic that once again Supporters Direct will be acknowledging one of our brilliant fans for their commitment to our great sport. It is always a special evening celebrating all that Betfred Championship and League 1 have to offer and the Supporters Direct Community Champion Award is always extremely well deserved.”

So do you know an unsung hero tucked away at the back of the bleachers who deserves some long overdue recognition for the work they do for your club, the community and the game?

What are you waiting for? Get in touch! Email SD Network Manager Nicola.hudson@supporters-direct.org and tell us in no more than 500 words why you or someone you know deserves to be the Supporters Direct Rugby League Community Champion 2018.

The winner will be chosen by a selected panel of SDRL Council members.

Applications close at midnight on 19th September 2018.

Winners will be notified by 21st September 2018.

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.
