Skolars go top with fifth win in a row

IN a fantastically-competitive Betfred League 1, London Skolars went top thanks to a 22-6 win against Doncaster at the New River Stadium — their fifth win in a row.

Their last defeat was a 34-4 reverse against Oldham at the Vestacare Stadium on March 24, after which Roughyeds boss Scott Naylor tipped them to produce a few shocks.
Since then they’ve beaten Workington Town, North Wales Crusaders and Doncaster at home and Coventry and Hunslet away.

They also picked up another point in an 18-18 home draw with Keighley Cougars — one of only three points dropped by the men from Cougar Park out of a possible 14.

The wins against Workington, Doncaster and Hunslet and the draw with Keighley — all heartland teams from the north — will have given them special satisfaction.

The top-six scramble for points and places continues today (Sunday) with these games:

North Wales Crusaders v Whitehaven; Newcastle Thunder v Keighley Cougars; OLDHAM v Coventry Bears; Workington Town v Hunslet.

Like the Skolars, Coventry have also had success against the ‘northern powerhouse’ teams in this most unpredictable of years, having beaten Newcastle and Workington Town.

“The team that is most consistent will win the league and go up automatically,

” said Oldham coach Scott Naylor, whose Roughyeds go into the game with two points more than Coventry but five fewer than leaders Skolars and with two games in hand.

Oldham can go third today if they beat the Bears and Hunslet lose at Workington.

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.
