The Roughyeds


‘We came with the right attitude’— Scott

AFTER consecutive defeats by Newcastle and Hunslet, Oldham boss Scott Naylor said before the game at West Wales Raiders that he wasn’t interested in the score or the result — just the level of performance.

He didn’t mean it literally of course; rather that he knew a good team performance over 80 minutes would produce the right result anyway.

So how was he after the 72-8, 14-try victory at Stebonheath Park in Llanelli?

“Good,” said the Roughyeds’ head coach.

“We came with the right attitude to do a professional job and that’s what we did.

“We scored nice tries, played good rugby and did the professional job that was expected of us.

“Raiders are a far better side this year than in previous years. They’re not the team they were; we knew that before we came down from this season’s footage we’ve seen of them.

“This place, without a doubt, has the potential to be a minefield for teams that come here without the right attitude or with the slightest feeling of complacency.

“We didn’t have either of those weaknesses. We were up for it and we did a good, thorough job.

“I made some changes and played some people in different positions and I felt those worked well.

“It was good to have Danny Langtree and Danny Bridge back on the field together.

“It was a good day all round, but we now start the serious work in preparing for Whitehaven’s visit to the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday (May 5) in the new 1895 Cup and then for the rest of the season.

“Hopefully, we’ve had our blip and we can now put some consistency together and get a run of good performances and right results.”

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.
