The Roughyeds


Fans to have their say at public meeting

ROUGHYEDS have called an open meeting for fans in the big room at the Vestacare Stadium social club on Tuesday, December 4 (next Tuesday), starting at 7pm.

As we hit a crucial part of the club year ― signing players, building a squad, selling season tickets and generally getting ready for the 2019 season ― it is appropriate that we give supporters a ‘taste’ of what’s going on behind the scenes and what we plan and hope to achieve off the field in the coming year.

We are also encouraging fans to come up with ideas for improving attendances, income and our engagement with young supporters in particular. It’s time to have your say and your input.

The players will be training at the Vestacare on the same night and we hope to have Scott Naylor on stage for a short time to answer your questions and talk about the new-look squad that is coming together nicely.

The forum will be led by Julie Collins, a Roughyeds fan who is managing director of Purpose Marketing and possesses a wealth of knowledge within business, sales and marketing.

Behind her she has 30 years of practical experience in retail, education, public sector, wholesale and professional services.

With her on stage will be Anne Kearns, who has done a wonderful job as ‘front of house’ and office manager during chairman Chris Hamilton’s enforced absence on sick leave, plus personnel from our media department and maybe others who beaver away behind the scenes with total dedication and commitment.

Hope to see you on the night . . . the more the merrier !

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.
