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.

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.
