Wembley double-header will be a great day out

FANS who went on our Roughyeds’ club trip to Wembley last year voted it a smash-hit and have been asking for details of this year’s big day out on Saturday, August 24.

The major difference this year is that there will be TWO major finals on the same bill — the Coral Challenge Cup final. starting at 3pm, to be followed by the inaugural 1895 Cup final, kicking off at 5.30pm.

There are several big hitters in the last eight of the Coral Challenge Cup, plus the intriguing prospect of a semi-final appearance by either Bradford Bulls or Halifax from the Betfred Championship.

The cost of this year’s trip will also include the final of the new 1895 Cup in which Oldham are through to the second round with another home tie against Doncaster to come as reward for a superb 48-12 win against Betfred League 1 leaders Whitehaven in the first round.

Seats will again be in Club Wembley as part of a deal reached between the RFL and the Roughyeds and all those on the trip will again get an opportunity to take part in the pre-match parade around the national stadium, one of the most iconic sporting venues in the world.

The price of £65 per head includes return executive coach travel, a Club Wembley ticket (value £55) for both games and a place in the parade as well as a great time guaranteed on the coach.

A deposit of £20 (or full payment) secures your place on this trip with the balance to be paid in full before July 31. Bookings can be made online; at the club offices; or pre-match at home games in the club shop.

The offices are open each week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 3pm.

Payment online is via debit or credit card and in person (office or shop) via cash or cheque.

We are hoping to take bigger numbers this year following the great success of last year’s trip so please book early!

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.
