1895 Cup First Round Draw Details

The draw for the first round of the 1895 Cup will take place next Tuesday, March 12th at Odsal Stadium, Bradford, following the Coral Challenge Cup fourth round draw.

Taking place for the first time in 2019, the 1895 Cup guarantees two non Super League clubs and their supporters the chance to experience the magic of Wembley, adding to the occasion of the Coral Challenge Cup Final day as fans from across the sport come together to celebrate Rugby League.

Eight Betfred League One clubs will feature in the First Round draw next Tuesday and their draw ball numbers will be as follows:

  • Doncaster
  • Hunslet
  • Keighley Cougars
  • Newcastle Thunder
  • Oldham
  • West Wales Raiders
  • Whitehaven
  • Workington Town

The four winners from Round One will then be joined by the 12 English Betfred Championship clubs (Barrow Raiders, Batley Bulldogs, Bradford Bulls, Dewsbury Rams, Featherstone Rovers, Halifax, Leigh Centurions, Rochdale Hornets, Sheffield Eagles, Swinton Lions, Widnes Vikings and York City Knights) in the Second Round Draw.

1895 Cup Rounds are scheduled as follows:

Round One – weekend of May 3-5

Round Two – midweek ties w/c June 3 (Clubs will be allowed to schedule their ties for the weekend of June 1-2 if neither have reached the quarter finals of the Coral Challenge Cup).

Quarter-Finals – mid-week w/c June 24

Semi-Finals – will be played on Sunday, July 28 (unless any of the teams have also qualified for the semi finals of the Coral Challenge Cup. In the case of a team qualifying for the semi finals of the Challenge Cup and the 1895 Cup, their semi final will be put back to either Tuesday July 30 or Wednesday July 31).

The 1895 Cup Final will take place on Saturday, August 24 following the Coral Challenge Cup final, which kicks off at 3pm.

One game per round of the 1895 Cup will be selected for live streaming via the Our League app and website with further broadcast negotiations ongoing and to be confirmed and announced in the near future. Details of selected games will be announced in due course.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
