Stand by for signing announcement at Awards Night

​HAVING signed nine players so far for 2019, Oldham will announce their latest capture at the club’s Awards Night on Friday.

Their may be another signing before then, but the club says it expects to be in a position to update fans with the latest squad-building news when the 2018 group assembles at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday night for the awards event.

Up to now it has been announced that six players from last season have re-signed — backs Dave Hewitt and Paul Crook and forwards Matty Wilkinson, Liam Bent, Jack Spencer and Luke Nelmes — and three newcomers have arrived in centre Danny Grimshaw, second-row Ben Calland and full-back Richie Hawkard.

Grimshaw was at Oldham in the Championship seasons of 2016 and 2017, but he left to go back to his former club, Hunslet, in the season that ended recently.

Only a few tickets remain for the Awards Night so fans wishing to be there need to get them quickly, either by booking online or paying by cash or cheque at the Roughyeds office.

They are priced at £12.50 which includes a pie-and-mash supper with vegetarian option.

Fans are being encouraged to wear their replica shirts.

The office will be open today (Wednesday) and on Friday (10am to 3pm each day), but you can ring Anne Kearns ANYTIME on 07811 988 426 regarding Awards Night tickets, season tickets or what’s left of last season’s replica merchandise, which is now on offer at HALF PRICE.

Said Anne:

“We don’t have a lot of merchandise left but it’s going at bargain prices and it’s all there to be looked at and tried on in the office when fans come in for Awards Night tickets.

“Once the Awards Night is out of the way we’ll start pushing the ‘back the boys’ season-ticket initiative, but anyone can buy season tickets immediately if they go online or drop into the office with cash or cheque.”

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.
