Roary’s Pride to be launched at Skolars game

‘Roary’s Pride’, our new junior members’ club for under-16s, will be officially launched at the Vestacare Stadium when we entertain London Skolars on March 24.

Our friendly lion mascot, welcomed wherever he goes, will play a lead role in the running of ‘Roary’s Pride’, along with lifelong fan Dave Murgatroyd, our official Oldham RLFC photographer and a member of our club’s new management board.

“I’m very excited about this. I think it’s a great idea,”

said Dave, who will work side by side with Roary to welcome members of the ‘Pride’, to run the club and to organise a number of events during the season.

Each new member will receive a unique pack which will include a Roary’s Pride cap and badge.

We will also be working with local schools to extend our ‘pride’ and to encourage new youngsters to get involved.

We are already working with pupils from Co-op Academy Failsworth who have been busy designing potential new logos for Roary’s Pride.

The winning design will be available soon.

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.
