The Roughyeds


Naylor sticks with similar 19

​IN the main Scott Naylor is keeping faith with the side that has scored 22 tries in its last two outings.

The head coach was particularly impressed with his side’s performance in a 48-12 1895 Cup win against Whitehaven and that is reflected in the 19 he has named for tomorrow’s (Sun) clash with Coventry Bears at the Vestacare Stadium. (3pm kick-off).

There is only one change in the 19, Ben Calland replacing Phil Joy.

There is no place either for fit-again Adam Brook and Anthony Bowman.

This is a further pointer to the possible thinking of the coach that he should reward the side that produced what in his view was one of the best shows of the season against Whitehaven last time out.

He has said though that over the next nine weeks, when there will be pressure rugby in the promotion chase on each successive weekend, the work load will be shared by all 22 players who are currently available to him.

Squad for tomorrow: Bent, Bridge, Calland, Crook, Davies, Greenwood, Gwaze, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Holmes, Johnson, Langtree, Law, Maders, McComb, Owen, Spencer, Whittel, Wilkinson.

Coventry come to the Vestacare only two points outside the play-off zone and having already beaten two teams with wins over the Roughyeds this year, namely Newcastle Thunder and Workington Town.

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.
