The Roughyeds


‘Kyran could be out ten weeks’ — Scott

​WINGER Kyran Johnson could be out for up to ten weeks with a broken jaw if Oldham’s fears about the injury are confirmed by hospital x-rays.

After playing well and setting up at least one of the Roughyeds’ nine tries in a 52-12 win at Keighley Cougars, ‘Johno’ rose high to collect a restart kick in the second half and fell to the ground clutching his face.

It was confirmed after the match that he had gone to hospital and head coach Scott Naylor was convinced that the former Featherstone Rovers utility back could be out for two and a half months.

“I’d like to know what we’ve done to deserve all the bad news we’re getting about our wingers,”

said the Oldham boss.

In the last two or three weeks he’s seen Lee Kershaw recalled from his loan spell by his full-time employers Wakefield Trinity; Aaron Jones-Bishop ruled out for the rest of the season because of a serious knee injury; and now Johnson sidelined for a few weeks with a fractured jaw.

The Johnson blow, however, was the only ‘nasty’ from Cougar Park where Roughyeds piled on the points to consolidate their third position in Betfred League 1.

Commenting on a fourth win in a row, he said:

“I’m delighted with the score because Keighley are gritty, tough and a side that gives 100 per cent.

“You can see that from their attitude. We had to match their energy. determination and effort before we could do anything and I’m happy to say we did that and a lot more besides.

“We put ourselves in a position to score points and we scored some outstanding tries.

“We spoke at half-time about how we could be more dominant in the second half and I was really pleased at the way we performed on a ground where our record hasn’t been at all good in the last few years.”

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.
