Liam joins our media team

WE are happy to announce the arrival of mature student Liam Brown as the fifth member of our club media team.

A local man, 32-year-old Liam has joined us for the full season as an intern from Huddersfield University where he is studying for a degree in broadcast journalism. He is in his third year.

Headed by Roger Halstead, a member of the Rugby League Writers and Broadcasters’ Association for more than 50 years, our team also comprises of David Murgatroyd (official club photographer), David Naylor (website, social media and digital expert) and Peter Gray (film and match video operator).

Liam will be assisting in all areas of the media operation but specialising in video interviews and other film work in which he will operate under the wing of Dave Naylor.

Said Liam:

“I’m really looking forward to this hands-on experience working in media. I hope to learn a lot over the course of the coming season and operating alongside Roger, the two Davids and Peter I’m sure I will.”

He’s not a diehard Roughyeds man, but he’s no stranger to rugby league either, having played at Oldham St Anne’s from under-11s to under-18s.

Liam added:

“By the end of the season I’m sure I’ll be just as mad keen as everybody else,”

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.
