New club logos — the choice is YOURS

FANS will be asked to vote for their choice of new club logos when they’re at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday for the Betfred League 1 game against Whitehaven.

Albeit a loss in a 32-28 thriller that went down to the very last play of the game after the hooter had blown, fans were generally agreed that the opening game of the season against Workington Town was a cracker which offered good entertainment and value for money.

Defeat means its all the more important that we bounce back defiantly — and with such a lot riding on the game, plus a forecast of more Spring-like weather, we’ve chosen this Sunday for the logos ballot because we expect a decent attendance and we want as many genuine fans as possible to have the opportunity to cast their vote.

We had thought about doing the ballot online, but after careful consideration we concluded the most reliable way to unearth the wishes of true supporters was to seek out the views of those fans who were actually at a game.

That game is this Sunday’s and we’re asking you to vote 1, 2 or 3 for the main club logo, proudly depicting the Oldham town crest which we know most fans were adamant about keeping, and 4, 5 or 6 for a secondary logo.

You can see each of the six numbered logos here and they will also feature in Sunday’s match-day programme.

To vote, and to have your personal input on a decision which Julie and her marketing team believe is one of extreme importance to the club’s identity, all you have to do is pop into the club shop, cast your vote (1, 2 OR 3 AND 4, 5 OR 6) and pop it into the ballot box.

Staff will be there to hand out your ballot paper and offer any assistance you might need.

As we begin to develop new ideas we feel it is very important that we keep our club identity clear and consistent, making sure that our brand and name are always seen to be projected loud and proud.

See you Sunday . . . and make your vote count.

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.
