ROUGHYEDS remind supporters that time is fast running out for anyone who wishes to order and pay up front for 2019 replica shirts etc with a massive 20 per cent off.
For fans wishing to purchase online (credit or debit card) the deadline is midnight this Friday, February 8.
Those preferring to do the transaction at the club office inside the Vestacare Stadium (cash or cheque) have until 3pm on Friday.
The office will be open 10am to 3pm today (Wednesday) and the same hours on Friday, but NOT on Thursday.
The merchandise hasn’t yet arrived but you can see both home and away Steeden replicas on the Roughyeds website, plus hoodies and polo shirts.
Before the deadline you pay £36 for an adults shirt (saving £9); £30 for a children’s replica (saving £8); £36 for an adults hoodie (saving £9); £30 for a children’s hoodie (saving £5); £24 for a polo shirt (saving £6), adults only.
The club hopes to see as many fans as possible in replicas this year, hence the decision, despite rising costs, to peg prices at last year’s levels before the 20 per cent discount was offered as well for early purchasers.
We expect the merchandise to be at the club by the time we open up the Betfred League 1 season with the visit of Workington Town to the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday week, February 17 (3pm).
+ Most of the players are individually sponsored, but sponsorship is still available for Ben Davies and new boys Aaron Jones-Bishop, Emerson Whittel, Adam Brook and local lad Harry Maders, our youngest squad member at the age of 19.
To take out sponsorship or make further inquiries ring Anne Kearns on 07904 898177 between 10am and 3pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
+ The draw for the third round of the Coral Challenge Cup, which will include Oldham, will be made in Coventry on Monday at 6pm and shown live on the BBC Sport website.
The two-year deal with Coral, which also includes the Women’s Challenge Cup, is worth a seven-figure fee.
Into the hat will go the 13 winners from this weekend’s second-round games, which include Rochdale Mayfield, the RAF and Great Britain Police, plus the 11 Betfred League 1 teams.
The third round will be played over the weekend of March 9/10.
Last year we beat Featherstone Lions 42-0 at home in round three and Halifax 27-6 away in round four before going out 0-32 to Hull KR at Bower Fold in round five.
