Hawkyard misses cup-tie

OLDHAM’S 19-man squad for Sunday’s third round Coral Challenge Cup-tie against Haydock at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm) will be announced later, but it won’t include full-back Ritchie Hawkyard.

He is having treatment for calf and groin injuries and will be left out to speed his full recovery.

The only other definite absentee is long-standing injury victim Paul Crook.

Head coach Scott Naylor has reported that a few players are shaking off bumps and bruises, but all will be up for consideration including Anthony Bowman and Danny Grimshaw, who were said to be “struggling” earlier in the week.

“I’ll be rotating the squad and making changes,”

added Naylor.

The under-11s of Oldham St Anne’s and Rylands of Warrington will play a curtain-raiser and then join forces to become flag bearers.

Each of the Oldham and Haydock players will leave the tunnel escorted by a mascot as several members of the Haydock junior section will be here to represent their club.

Fans wishing to watch the junior game can do so by entering the ground via the “tickets” turnstile from 1pm.

Saints under-11s, who are featured in the match-day programme, have been together for five seasons and friendships for life have been forged.

Rylands Whites are gearing up for their third season as the White Sharks.

In 2018 they moved up a group and struggled a little bit but they kept their heads and kept their composure and began the 2019 season last week with a great win.

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.
