1895 Cup Second Round – dates and Our League coverage

The Our League cameras will head for Cumbria for the first time this season when Barrow’s 1895 Cup Second-Round tie against Bradford Bulls is shown live through the RFL’s mobile web and app on Wednesday June 5.

Five of the eight Second-Round ties will be played on Sunday June 2, as there are no Betfred Championship or League One fixtures scheduled for the weekend because of the Coral Challenge Cup quarter finals.

But that option was not open to Bradford or Halifax, as a result of their success in reaching the Challenge Cup quarter finals – in which they will face each other at Odsal in a tie that has been selected for live coverage by the BBC.

As a result, they will both play their 1895 Cup Second Round ties the following Wednesday – with Halifax drawn at home to Sheffield Eagles, and the Bulls away to the Raiders.

It will be Bradford’s first trip to Barrow since a 1994 Challenge Cup tie, when they were known as Bradford Northern and won 54-30 – going on to the quarter finals before losing to Leeds.

In addition, Widnes Vikings will play their home tie against Featherstone Rovers on Wednesday June 5.

The 16 clubs still in the RFL’s new competition are only three wins from Wembley, with the first 1895 Cup Final to be played after the Coral Challenge Cup Final on Saturday August 24.

The draw for the quarter finals will be held on the BBC Radio Leeds breakfast show at 8.20am on Friday June 7. 1895 Cup.

Second Round Sunday June 2 (all matches 3pm kick-off): Batley Bulldogs v Rochdale Hornets, Dewsbury Rams v Swinton Lions, Leigh Centurions v Workington Town, Oldham v Doncaster, York City Knights v Newcastle Thunder.

Wednesday June 5 (kick-off times tbc): Barrow Raiders v Bradford Bulls (Our League), Halifax v Sheffield Eagles, Widnes Vikings v Featherstone Rovers.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
