The Roughyeds


Notice for fans

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Roughyeds office will NOT be open on Monday morning. It will be open from 1pm to 3pm but closed in the morning. That applies to this coming Monday (Nov 19) only.

Apologies for any inconvenience that might cause.

Otherwise, the office will continue to be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 3pm until further notice.

As you all know, we are currently in the process of building a squad for 2019 which we believe will be strong enough to be attractive, entertaining and successful — more signings will be announced next week — and as part of that process we hope fans will seriously consider taking out season tickets at a time of year when we have little income but a lot of expenditure.

That applies every year, but this year more than ever before because of changes that are taking place within the sport.

We need more season-ticket holders; more people through the turnstiles; and a bigger social media presence.

You can buy season tickets (prices on the club website) online; by post; or by calling into the office and paying by cash or cheque only.
Next week the office will be open as follows:

Monday: 1pm to 3pm Wednesday: 10am to 3pm Friday: 10am to 3pm

To buy by post send cheques (payable to ORLFC) to: Oldham RLFC, Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Road, Limehurst Village, Oldham, OL8 3JH.

Phone: 07904 898 177 or 07811 988 426.

Every fan who buys a season ticket, which are on Early Bird offer until December 14, will receive a newly-designed club scarf.

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.
