Swans drive new kit sponsorship deal

LOCAL firm Swans Travel, who have carried our team all over the country for several years, have joined our 2019 kit sponsorship portfolio in a new link-up featuring club and company.

It isn’t the first time the Swans Travel brand has been featured on our playing kit and we are pleased to announce it will again be on the shorts in a 2019 Betfred League 1 campaign in which we are expected to be one of the leading lights.

“We are looking forward to working with Oldham RLFC again ,” said Swans Travel managing director Kieran Swindells.

“We’ll be carrying the team to away games and it goes without saying that we wish them all the best in their bid to win promotion this year.”

Based on Broadway Business Park (tel: 0800 799 9423), Swans provide coaches that fall into four categories — accessible, charter, executive and VIP.
Formed in 1978, the company has grown into one of the leading passenger transport companies in the UK.

As a family-owned, private limited company Swans offer maximum service in all aspects of ground transport and management.

A modern fleet of vehicles range from upmarket cars to full-size luxury coaches that have the latest features in safety and comfort.

The company’s unrivalled experience is supported by one of the most advanced 24-hour control centres, on call 365 days a year, monitoring the UK-wide fleet via a unique satellite tracking system.

Said Oldham RLFC chairman Chris Hamilton:

“We’ve been with Swans for a few years and we’ve never had anything but the best possible service and delivery.

“We’ve a lot of travelling to do this year, to places like Newcastle, London, Whitehaven, Llanelli in South-West Wales, Coventry and Workington and we know we can rely on Swans, our friendly, local coach firm to provide us with the best possible service.”

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.
