The 2019 Challenge Cup first round fixture between Millom and Red Star Belgrade at Coronation Field on Sunday, January 27 (KO 1.30pm) is to be live streamed on the BBC Sport website.

In 2018, Millom defeated Strathmore Silverbacks and Bradford Dudley Hill to reach Round 3 of the competition, where they came head to head with NCL side Pilkington Recs.

Showcasing the game from grass roots level upwards, streamed games featuring the likes of York City Knights v Catalans Dragons and Rochdale Mayfield v Crosfields attracted over 92,000 viewers last year.

Red Star supporters who can’t make the trip to Cumbria will also be able to watch the game across the world via the BBC Sport website.

BBC Sport and the Rugby Football League will live stream one game from each of the first five rounds of the 2019 Challenge Cup. When the competition reaches the sixth round and beyond, matches will be screened on BBC1 and BBC2 over each weekend.

Tickets for the 2019 Challenge Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, August 25 can be purchased by calling the Rugby League Ticket Office on 0844 856 1113 or by visiting www.rugby-league.com/tickets

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.
