The Roughyeds


‘We beat ourselves’ — Carey

ASSISTANT boss Peter Carey said the 28-32 defeat by Workington Town was another example of the squad’s apparent inability to close down tight games when they re in front with only a short time left.

Oldham led 28-20 with quarter of an hour left but then made too many mistakes, failed to complete sets and continually put themselves under pressure.

Said No 2 Carey:

“We’re disappointed because we’d been working on certain things during the week and the lads have failed to put them into practice.

“We made an awful start. I think we must have been still in the changing rooms.

“We then showed a lot of character to get back into the game, whereupon we started to make a lot of mistakes with the result that we had very little field position, especially in the second half.

“When we led 28-20 near the end we should have been making sure we completed our sets to close down the game, but we didn’t do it with the consequence that we spent the whole of the second half defending our line.

“We did everything but settle down when we were two scores ahead in the closing stages and to be brutally honest we beat ourselves.

“We worked last week on defending kicks yet thy scored twice like that, which was disappointing to say the least.

“We knew what we needed to do to beat Workington, The lads had the information but they didn’t go out and execute it.”

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.
