Aaronson, Brook in Oldham 19

​NEW recruit Harry Aaronson and half-back Adam Brook, who hasn’t played for several weeks because of a broken wrist, are both included in Oldham’s 19 for the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup second-round tie against Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium tomorrow (Sunday), kick-off 3pm.

Compared with last week, there are four changes in the 19, Aaronson (21), Brook, Harry Maders and Jamie Greenwood replacing the injured Kyran Johnson, Danny Bridge and Danny Langtree as well as the unavailable Emmerson Whittel.

Squad: Aaronson, Bent, Bowman, Brook, Calland, Crook, Davies, Greenwood, Gwaze, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Holmes, Joy, Law, Maders, McComb, Owen, Spencer, Wilkinson.

Bowman, out for several weeks with a rib injury, was in last week’s 19, but didn’t play because his wife went into labour the day before the game.

Harry Maders didn’t play either, because of an allergic reaction to something unknown, but he has now been cleared to play.

Roughyeds will be seeking their fifth win in a row as they bid to reach the new knock-out tournament’s last eight.

Coaches, players, chairman Chris Hamilton and the new management board of nine – John Davies, Roger Halstead, Anne Kearns, John McAndrew, Dave Murgatroyd, Dave Naylor and Ben Whisker – urge all fans to turn up and support the boys in numbers at a time when the RFL and the sport’s authorities are taking stock of each club’s attendance figures., Julie Coll

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.
