Social Media Engagement

The Oldham club is looking to boost its social media presence in 2019 across as many popular platforms as possible.

The Rugby Football League is encouraging all clubs to engage with their fans, communities and local sports networks in an effort to increase engagement and put bodies through the turnstiles. Future funding may rely on how successful we are in putting the name of Oldham RLFC on the social media map.

Fans who are users of any social media platform can help the club by actively engaging with the club’s social media output. Many of you already do but likes, favourites, retweets and all the rest can only help to boost the club’s modern day reputation and increase our online/offline audience.

Hitting that button to promote the club in your personal timelines or pages will spread the Oldham RLFC message to your friends and followers. Some may follow the club accounts therefore raising our social media profile.

Our Twitter followers currently number just short of 7000. Let’s see if we can get that figure beyond 10,000 by the time the 2019 season starts.

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.
