Steeden become official match-ball partner

AS part of a new three-year partnership, Australian sports manufacturer Steeden will become the official match-ball supplier to Betfred Super League, Championship and League 1, the Challenge Cup and England Rugby League programmes.

Steeden is currently the official match ball of the NRL, New Zealand RL, Queensland RL and New South Wales RL, among others, and the Symmetry match ball will be reintroduced at the professional level in the UK this season, ensuring continuity and familiarity for players.

Steeden match balls will be in use from early January for all pre-season games and will feature in round one of the Challenge Cup over the weekend of January 26 and 27.

The three-year agreement sees the RFL move away from Rhino Rugby League, who have been a partner since 2014, but will continue to provide branded equipment in 2019.

RFL chief executive Ralph Rimmer said: “It’s fantastic that such a well-recognised brand will be supplying our players with the best equipment and we look forward to working with Steeden over the next three seasons.”

Retail stock will be available in March through www.steedensports.com or through clubs who have purchased the supporter balls.

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.
