Keen-fan Rob flies the flag in New Zealand

ROUGHYEDS fans get everywhere !

Keen supporter Rob Long, known by many fellow fans and players as ‘Rob the gardener’, is currently on the trip of a lifetime to New Zealand.

“As you can see from the pictures I’m flying the flag for the club,”

said Rob, who is proudly wearing his Oldham RLFC top on the other side of the world.

We don’t know whether he’ll be back for our first home game of the season against derby rivals Rochdale Hornets for the Law Cup on Sunday, January 20 (3pm), but knowing ‘the Gardener’s’ enthusiasm for club and team we wouldn’t back against it.

In the meantime he’s doing his bit to spread the word in a country that loves its rugby.

Well done Rob . . . and enjoy the rest of your trip !

You can see more images of Rob’s adventures in our Roughyeds World Gallery. Any fan can upload their travel photos from the page on one condition, you’ve got to be showing your Oldham colours!

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.
