OLDHAM’S wing woes have been well documented in the past few days, but there was better news when Harry Aaronson signed on loan from Swinton and now comes further good news in that Harry Maders has been cleared to resume playing after his problems with a mysterious allergic reaction.
It prevented him playing in the 52-12 win at Keighley Cougars last Saturday and then UK Anti-Doping became involved because of the nature of his medication.
On Harry’s behalf, the club followed all the usual protocol and went down the right channels in these very unusual circumstances.
Club chairman Chris Hamilton has since confirmed that UK Anti-Doping has given its approval for Maders to start playing again.
Both he and another Harry, the on-loan Aaronson, are expected to figure in the squad of 19 for the visit of Doncaster to the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday (3pm) in the second round of the new 1895 Cup.
Non-playing members of the squad will be helping to sell tickets in a fund-raising ORSA event — a show of support from the dressing room who are truly appreciative of everything ORSA do for them.
