Davies injury blow for unlucky Roughyeds

PROP Ben Davies is almost certainly out of Oldham’s important Betfred League 1 clash at Newcastle Thunder on Sunday after suffering a serious mouth injury in the Coral Challenge Cup defeat by Widnes Vikings.

He appeared to be hurt in a second-half clash of heads with team mate Jack Spencer. After attention on the pitch, he walked off with a bloody mouth and was taken away to hospital.

“It was seriously nasty — one of the worst injuries of its kind I’ve ever seen,”

said coach Scott Naylor.

Due to suspensions and injuries, Roughyeds went into the tie without a clutch of senior players such as Aaron Jones-Bishop, Adam Brook, Matty Wilkinson, Lee Kershaw, Danny Grimshaw, Danny Bridge and Anthony Bowman.

Of those seven, Brook, Grimshaw and Bridge will still be unavailable; Brook and Grimshaw because of injury and Bridge because his suspension still has a short time to run. He will be free for the long trip to Llanelli for the West Wales Raiders game on Saturay, April 27.

Another in jury concern from the cup-tie was one involving Harry Maders, who might have torn a calf or, at best, damaged it to a lesser degree.

On a happier note, Jones-Bishop and Bowman have now cleared their two-match bans and on-loan Kershaw will be available again after missing the Widnes game because his parent club, Wakefield Trinity, didn’t want him to be cup-tied.

Naylor is also hopeful that hooker Wilkinson will be available for the trip to the North-East after missing the Widnes game because he took a knock to the head against London Skolars and ultimately failed a head test.

“We follow protocol in things like this but he’ll have another test this week and hopefully he’ll come through,”

said Naylor.

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.
