The Roughyeds


A cracking opener — Workington at home

OUR first game in Betfred League 1 next season will be a cracker at the Vestacare Stadium against Workington Town on Sunday, February 17, kick-off 3pm.

The Cumbrians beat Bradford Bulls home and away last season but lost to them in the Grand Final.

They are considered to be among the favourites for promotion and will come to the Vestacare geared up for an opener against another fancied team — your new-look Roughyeds !

For curtain-up we couldn’t have asked for anything better, or anything tougher.

The full fixtures will be released at 6pm today.

No better time then to remind fans that the club office at the Vestacare Stadium is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday (10am to 3pm) for the sale of season tickets which provide a lifeline for the club during the close season when there are still considerable outgoing with little income.

You can buy ‘over the counter’ by cheque or cash or you can send a cheque by post to Oldham RLFC,

Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Rd, Limehurst Village, Oldham OL8 3JH.

Alternatively, you can buy online via the Roughyeds online store where you can find full details of the discounted prices which are on offer until December 14.

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.
