Chairman Chris in talks with players

CHAIRMAN Christopher Hamilton met with the whole playing squad after training last night following Oldham’s defeat on Good Friday at home to Hunslet.

It was Roughyeds’ third defeat in their first six Betfred League 1 games and on each occasion their opponents, Workington, Newcastle and Hunslet, have come from behind to win in the later stages.

The chairman and coach Scott Naylor had a long chat after the Hunslet game, as they always do, and didn’t leave the ground until late.

Said Hamilton:

“As a result of that I wanted to speak with the players.

“There is no crisis or panic but, equally, the players need to know, and the fans expect to know, that we are not just sitting back and letting things unfold without addressing matters.

“As much as anything else, it was about reassuring the players that the coaches and myself have faith in them and that we are behind them.

“Fortunately, results in the league have shown that nobody is going to run away with it and, as such, we are still very much in the mix.

“We start again on Saturday (against West Wales Raiders in Llanelli) and everybody is looking forward to getting back out on the pitch”.

He confirmed also that Luke Nelmes and Danny Grimshaw have been absent from training recently, without permission. and said the club remained committed to following RFL protocol in dealing with those situations.
