New-boy Gwaze (19) named in squad

MOST Oldham fans may see two newcomers in action for the first time at the Vestacare Stadium tomorrow (Sunday) when the curtain goes up on the 2019 Betfred League 1 campaign.

Young prop Titus Gwaze, who has signed from Wakefield Trinity on a one-month loan initially, is included in the 19 and will be hoping to make his debut.

Half-back Adam Brook played half a game at Swinton in the last pre-season game, but he is hoping to make his Vestacare bow against Workington Town (3pm), having also been named in the provisional squad.

19-man squad:

  • Liam Bent — sponsored by ORSA
  • Anthony Bowman — sponsored by Graeme Lee
  • Adam Brook — sponsorship available
  • Ben Calland — sponsored by Luke, Abbie and Jessica Davies
  • Jamie Greenwood — sponsored by Sandra Bullock
  • Titus Gwaze — sponsored by Anne Kearns
  • Ritchie Hawkyard — sponsored by Rita Walton
  • Dave Hewitt — sponsored by Chris Noble MBE
  • Jack Holmes — sponsored by David and Val Webster
  • Aaron Jones-Bishop — sponsored by Les and Eileen Davison
  • Phil Joy — sponsored by Past Players’ Association
  • Lee Kershaw — sponsored by Rugby Oldham Supporters’ Trust
  • Scott Law — sponsored by Les and Eileen Davison
  • Zack McComb — sponsored by David and Val Webster
  • Luke Nelmes — sponsored by John and Lynda McAndrew
  • Gareth Owen — sponsored by Purpose Business and Marketing Ltd
  • Jack Spencer — sponsored by Graeme Lee
  • Emmerson Whittel — sponsorship available
  • Matty Wilkinson — sponsored by John and Lynda McAndrew

The only players still available for sponsorship are Emmerson Whittel, Ben Davies, Harry Maders and Adam Brook, but there is scope for the sponsorship of head coach Scott Naylor, his assistant Peter Carey and conditioner Adam Neal.

  • The opening game of the Betfred League 1 season ended in a 32-26 win for Doncaster in a thriller at highly-fancied Newcastle Thunder.
    Thunder led 22-4 at half-time but Doncaster stormed back in the second half to stun the home side and get their season off to a flying start.

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.
