The Roughyeds


Half-back Brook cleared to play in cup-tie

ADAM Brook and Matty Wilkinson have been cleared to play after injury as Oldham RL Club gear-up for Sunday’s cup-tie against Betfred League 1 leaders Whitehaven at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm).

With eight League 1 clubs and the 12 English-based Championship clubs taking part in this new 1895 Cup, Oldham and the seven other third-tier clubs who are setting out on the cup trail this weekend are only four games away from fulfilling a Wembley dream.

The final will be played as a double-header with the Coral Challenge Cup final on Saturday, August 24.

Anthony Bowman (broken ribs) and Aaron Jones-Bishop (knee) are Oldham’s only casualties.

Coach Scott Naylor will pick from 21 — 16 of the 17 who helped Roughyeds to win 72-8 at West Wales Raiders last Saturday plus Phil Joy, Ben Calland, Brook, Wilkinson and Ben Davies.
The odd man out from last week is young on-loan prop Frazer Morris, who has gone back to Halifax.

Naylor will choose from these: Bent, Bridge, Brook, Calland, Crook, Davies, Greenwood, Gwaze, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Holmes, Johnson, Joy, Langtree, Law, Maders, McComb, Owen, Spencer, Whittel, Wilkinson.

Hooker Wilkinson has been out with concussion while half-back Brook comes back into the running after breaking a wrist in the win against London Skolars at the Vestacare Stadium on March 24.

Second-row man Danny Bridge is likely to make his first home appearance since last July after clearing a nine-month RFL suspension.

He was back in the big win at Llanelli last week and he looked as though he had never been away.

Said Naylor: “Everybody played well last week and all 17 of them put themselves in the shop window for the cup-tie.

“I’ve a few options, but that’s what I want .”

Of the new 1895 Cup competition he said:

“It gives clubs outside Super League a realistic chance to get to Wembley and a chance to win a trophy. Clubs like to win trophies and this is an opportunity to do it.”

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.
