Roary’s Pride members are reminded that their first get-together takes place TOMORROW (Saturday, May 18) , in the social club at the Vestacare Stadium, from 9am to 10.30am.
Please note that, for this inaugural meeting, parents need to stay with their children because Murgy, Roary and Sophie, who are organising and running ‘Pride’ haven’t yet got essential safeguarding needs in place.
In any event they would love parents to be present at the ‘off’ so the adults can get an ideas of what’s going on and what will be going on in subsequent sessions.
Emergency calls-out permitting, there will be a fire engine and fife-fighters present as well as three members of the playing squad in club captain Gareth Owen, Danny Bridge and Harry Maders — three Oldham-born local lads who are proud to play for their home-town team and proud to be supported by Roary and his club members.
Children will be able to chat with the players, ask them questions and get their autographs.
Certificates will be available for those members who still haven’t got them.
Anyone wishing to turn up and become a member can do so, but they will need the annual membership fee of £10 plus an adult presence to supervise.
Said Murgy (Dave Muratroyd):
“We hope as many members as possible will come to this first session so that everybody can get to know each other and make new friends.
“This first meeting will also act as a ‘taster’ for things to come so it really is in everybody’s interests to turn up for this opener. Roary especially is really looking forward to seeing everybody.”
