Harry Maders cleared to play

​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.

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.
