Workington defeat opens things up

​WORKINGTON Town’s surprise 50-22 defeat at Newcastle has again opened things up in the jostle for play-off places in Betfred League 1.

York City Knights or Bradford Bulls will fill one play-off spot, leaving three to be contested by Doncaster, Workington, Oldham, Hunslet and Whitehaven.

Only four points separate the five with Doncaster on 32 points, Workington on 32, Oldham on 30, Hunslet on 30 and Whitehaven on 28.

Workington now have only two games left, while the others have three.

Roughyeds have the toughest run-in of them all, playing leaders York away tomorrow; second-placed Bradford Bulls at the Vestacare Stadium next Sunday (Sep 16); and London Skolars away on Saturday, September 22.

You can watch the York v Oldham game by signing up FREE for OurLeague (see the Roughyeds website) and you can buy tickets for the Bradford game from the Roughyeds office at the Vestacare between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday next week.

Key games tomorrow in the battle for play-off spots are York v OLDHAM; Keighley Cougars v Doncaster; and Whitehaven v Hunslet.

The Oldham-Bradford game next Sunday (3pm) is NOT all-ticket (turnstiles open at 1pm) but by buying tickets in advance fans will ease congestion around the turnstiles and make entry into the ground far more comfortable.

Entry to the social club will be from inside the ground.

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.
