Stephen Rogerson wins our Grand Final ticket comp

CONGRATULATIONS to Stephen Rogerson, who has won our Grand Final ticket competition and thus receives two tickets for Saturday evening’s Betfred Super League showdown between Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves at Old Trafford.

All but four of the 43 entries gave the correct answer to the question we set which was to name a former Oldham RLFC chairman who was the grandfather of 2018 Super League Grand Final referee Robert Hicks.

The answer was the late Ken Fisher, who would have been hugely proud of what his grandson has achieved, and is still achieving, in the world of refereeing.

Of the 39 correct answers Stephen’s was the one drawn out of the hat so heartiest congratulations to him and best wishes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

What we are sure will be another enjoyable evening for Roughyeds fans will be our 2018 season Players’ Awards Night which will be held at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday night, November 9, starting at 7.30pm.

It will be an opportunity for supporters to rub shoulders with the players and to recognise their sterling efforts during the season just ended.

It will be an informal, relaxed evening when supporters are encouraged to wear their replica shirts which they have worn with pride all year.

Tickets at £12.50, including a hot supper of pie and mash with extras, can be bought on-line via the Roughyeds online store.

Anyone wishing to buy by cash or cheque in person from the Roughyeds office at the Vestacare Stadium is advised to first ring Anne Kearns on 07811-988426 to make arrangements.

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.
