The Roughyeds


Supported by a corporate network

OLDHAM, 2/1 favourites to win Betfred League 1, which kicks off this weekend, will have the backing and support of up to a dozen local and national sponsors in their pursuit of promotion to the Championship.

Club captain Gareth Owen has already stated publicly, ahead of Sunday’s opening game against last season’s beaten play-off finalists Workington Town at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm) , that the dressing room goal for 2019 is to finish top and go up automatically.

“We don’t want to be involved in play-offs. We want to get the job done and then we can sit back and watch the next five scrap it out,”

said the Roughyeds skipper.

The loan signing this week of Wakefield’s 19-year-old prop Titus Gwaze has taken the squad to 25 in number, 21 of whom have already been sponsored individually, mainly by fans.

In the last few hours Anne Kearns has sponsored Titus, while Luke, Abbie and Jessica Davies have gone with Ben Calland , leaving only Emerson Whittel, Ben Davies, Harry Maders and Adam Brook still to be’adopted’.

Scott Naylor, Peter Carey and Adam Neal are also available for backing.

The players wish to thank all their sponsors as well as the companies, firms and others who have have either extended club or kit sponsorship agreements or signed up to new deals in order to take their places in the club’s sponsorship portfolio.

Eight were with us last year and have renewed for 2019, namely Bamford Print of Heywood, Hanlon and Wright of Dukinfield, H Mullaney and Son of Mossley, the Oldham Times, ORSA, Regenda Homes, Spindles Town Square Shopping and the University of Salford.

The four newcomers are Purpose Business and Marketing, the Property Buying Company, Swans Travel and Premier Car, who have replaced Premier SsangYong.

Latest to come on board are The Oldham Times, for the second year running, and Premier Car.

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton:

“A massive thank-you to all our sponsors, both corporate and individual.

“These are difficult times financially in pro sport and sponsorship is a vital element that helps to keep heads above water.

“At the same time we strive to play our part in making sure that sponsorship deals are beneficial to all parties.”

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.
