Cumbrian double-up provides early test

OLDHAM couldn’t have wished for a tougher, or more attractive, start to their 2019 Betfred League 1 fixture list with Cumbrian heavyweights Workington and Whitehaven visiting the Vestacare Stadium on the first two Sundays of the new campaign.

We open up with Leon Pryce’s Workington Town at home on Sunday, February 17, followed by Whitehaven, also here, on February 24, both kicking off at 3pm.

North Wales Crusaders away is next on the agenda on Sunday, March 3, then it’s the third round of the Challenge Cup, followed by London Skolars at home, on Sunday, March 24, giving us three home games out of our first four league fixtures.

Oldham, Doncaster, the two Cumbrian clubs and Newcastle Thunder will fancy their chances of going up in what promises to be a highly competitive division.

There will be two cup competitions this year — the Challenge Cup and the new 1895 Cup which is for teams outside of Super League.

The final will be at Wembley on the same day as the Challenge Cup final, Saturday, August 24.

The first round will be on the weekend of May 4/5 with the second round and the quarter-final both taking place as mid-week games in June.

Back to the league competition and the team finishing top will go up automatically, to be joined by the winners of a five-team play-off featuring the sides finishing two to six inclusive.

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.
