Cup fixtures selected for Our League

The battle of the Crusaders will take centre stage in Round Four of the Coral Challenge Cup when the Our League cameras focus on Thatto Heath Crusaders v North Wales Crusaders on Saturday, March 30 (KO 2.30pm).

Thatto Heath, are one of only four amateur sides remaining in the competition and have defeated Stanningley, Leigh Miners Rangers and Rochdale Mayfield so far this year – the latter fixture appearing live on BBC Sport in Round Three.

League 1’s North Wales Crusaders entered the Challenge Cup in Round Three defeating fellow League 1 side London Skolars away from home to progress. The Crusaders will be looking for a victory to move on to Round Five, a feat they haven’t accomplished since 2015.

Adding to the already bumper schedule of Our League streaming in the coming months, the 1895 Cup First Round fixture between Hunslet RLFC and Workington Town will be live streamed from the South Leeds Stadium on Saturday, May 4 (KO 3.00pm).

Hunslet and Workington are two of the three League One clubs entering the cup to have played previously at Wembley – and both are former Challenge Cup winners, Hunslet in 1934, and Workington in 1952.

Eight League 1 sides enter the 1895 Cup at this stage and will be joined by the 12 English Championship sides in Round Two. Coral Challenge Cup Round Four Fixtures in full are available to view here – www.rugby-league.com/challengecup/fixtures

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.
