Keighley Cougars v Bradford Bulls selected by BBC Sport

The West Yorkshire derby between Keighley Cougars and Bradford Bulls has been selected for live streaming by BBC Sport on Sunday, March 31 (2.45pm) in the Fourth Round of the Coral Challenge Cup.

The tie is set to be a mouth-watering affair as the reinvigorated Cougars, who currently play in League 1 take on Challenge Cup heavyweights and Championship side Bradford Bulls on the BBC Sport website and Red Button.

The Cougars, who earlier this year announced a takeover bid to save the club, have only previously appeared in a Challenge Cup final once before in 1937. In the Third Round of this year’s competition they fought off a valiant display from CARLA side Distington to progress.

Their opponents in the Fourth Round, Bradford Bulls, are no strangers to the Challenge Cup final, lifting the prestigious trophy on five occasions – 1944, 1947, 1949, 2000, 2003.

Bulls’ Head Coach John Kear also led his former club Sheffield Eagles to one of the biggest Challenge Cup shocks in history when they defeated Wigan Warriors in 1998. From Round One to Round Three over 50,000 viewers have tuned in to BBC Sport’s live streams so far in 2019.

As in previous rounds, an additional game will also be streamed via the Our League app and website on Saturday, March 31. Details will be announced in due course.

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.
