The Roughyeds


Haydock here in Coral Challenge Cup

AFTER a blip in the handling of the third-round draw for the Coral Challenge Cup, the RFL confirmed that Roughyeds will be at home to Haydock on the weekend of March 9 and 10.

Viewers on the BBC website initially heard that Roughyeds would play Lock Lane of Castleford at home, but the RFL later announced that it would be Haydock visiting the Vestacare Stadium on the second weekend of next month.

An RFL spokesman said: “The ball no.6 was read out as no.9 and vice versa.

“In order to maintain the integrity of the competition we need to honour the draw as the balls were drawn out and not as they were read out.”

Lock Lane will now visit Wigan St Jude’s.

The Oldham-Haydock tie will be a repeat of the 2017 fourth-round clash between the same sides on a wet and muddy Bower Fold pitch.

Haydock scored two unconverted tries in the first few minutes to go 8-0 up, but Roughyeds recovered and led 20-8 at half-time on their way to a 40-12 win.

In the fifth round at Featherstone, Scott Naylor’s men were beaten 30-4.

The following year, 2018, Roughyeds beat Featherstone Lions at home in round three and Halifax at The Shay in round four before going out to Hull KR at Bower Fold.

Commenting on next month’s home clash with Haydock, this time at the Vestacare Stadium, Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton said:

“We’re at home and that’s always what you want.

“It will be a huge event for Haydock, as it was last time, so we’ll expect a very tough game.”

Full draw:

_Keighley Cougars v Distington; OLDHAM v Haydock; Thatto Heath v Rochdale Mayfield; Wigan St Jude’s v Lock Lane; Newcastle Thunder v West Wales Raiders; London Skolars v North Wales Crusaders; Hunslet v West Bowling; Workington Town v Siddal; York Acorn v Featherstone Lions; West Hull v Dewsbury Moor; Doncaster v Coventry Bears; Whitehaven v Wigan St Pat’s.

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.
