Back the boys as season tickets go on sale

​OLDHAM RLFC will launch its 2019 season-ticket operation tomorrow (Friday, November 2) with a plea to fans to “back the boys” and raise vital revenue.

A reduction in the number of Betfred League 1 clubs from 14 to 11 next season means a programme of only TEN home league games in the regular season, down by three when compared with last year.

That will inevitably result in major reductions in club income.

With that in mind Roughyeds are urging supporters to consider buying a season ticket if at all possible to help the club financially and to “back the boys“.

“This is more important than ever before. We seriously need a good response,” said Anne Kearns, who has been helping to run the club on a day-to-day basis while chairman Chris Hamilton has been on long-term sick leave after major heart surgery.

Everyone who buys a season ticket will get the equivalent of one game free and will also be given a newly-designed Oldham RLFC scarf worth £10, thus making season-ticket discounts even more attractive.

As part of the “back the boys” initiative, match-day admission prices will be pegged at 2018 levels and season tickets (ten home league games) will be sold as follows:


Standing: adults £126; concessions £108; under-16s, £15.
Seating: adults £144; concessions £126; under-16s £40.


Standing: adults £14; concessions £12; under-16s £2.
Seating: adults £16; concessions £14; under-16s £5.

Starting tomorrow (Fri) payment for season tickets can be made by cheque or cash at the Oldham RLFC office inside the Vestacare Stadium or online via the Roughyeds’ online store as a single payment or via our three-month, interest free payment plan.

Fans wishing to take advantage of the three-month payment plan must have paid the first instalment by November 30.

These discounted prices are available only from Friday, November 2 until Friday, December 14, six weeks in which you can “back the boys” and help the club financially to look forward to the 2019 season with confidence.

A season ticket, of course, will be an ideal Christmas present for any Roughyeds supporter or local rugby league enthusiast.

Office opening times for those fans wishing to pay by cash or cheque over the counter will be as follows (starting tomorrow, Friday, Nov 2):

Monday, Wednesday, Friday each week from 10am to 3pm.

Any queries relating to season tickets, office opening times, the Awards Night on Friday, November 9 or anything else for that matter ring Anne Kearns on 07811 988 426.

Don’t forget the slogan . . . “back the boys“.

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.
