Fathers’ Day Fun includes half-price offer for June 30

FANS attending our home clash with Phil Larder’s Keighley Cougars at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday (3pm kick-off) will be given the opportunity to watch our next home game against West Wales Raiders on Sunday, June 30 for half price.

To mark Fathers’ Day we’ll have a lot of fun, which will include John Davies’s Half-Time Challenge; special offers for all fans (non season-ticket holders and season-ticket holders); the presence of the Past Players’ Association; and the assistance of a very special group of children on flag-bearing duties (more of that later).

Fans who are not season-ticket holders will be given a voucher on the turnstiles which will entitle them to half-price general admission to the West Wales game in two weeks’ time on June 30; namely £7 for adults and £6 for concessions.

Under-16s will get FREE admission to the West Wales game.

To take advantage of the half-price admission on June 30 adults and concessions will need to obtain a voucher on entering the ground this Sunday.

Fans please note that the offer relates to standing only and that the normal £2 upgrade to seats remains in place.

Season-ticket holders, meanwhile, will be offered an exclusive discount on shop items with an extra 20 per cent off 2019 merchandise, which has already been reduced, on production of voucher ‘A’ from their book.

“These are just some of the latest initiatives we have introduced in an attempt to improve numbers at matches and to increase the club’s profile,”

said chairman Chris Hamilton.

Season-ticket holders wishing to take advantage of the 20 per cent discount online can do so until 11.59pm on Sunday, June 30. Enter the coupon-code OLDHAM20 and your season-ticket number at the checkout to qualify.

Those wishing to pay in person at the office (tel: 07904 898177) can do so each Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 3pm (cash or cheque only on production of voucher ‘A’) up to and including Friday, June 28.

John Davies’s Half-Time Challenge, which is growing in popularity match on match, gives young fans an opportunity to test their nerve and their skill by attempting to kick a rugby ball and hit the crossbar from the 20-metre line.

John invites young people out of the crowd to take part and he is looking especially for boys and girls in either Roary’s Pride caps, Roughyeds replica shirts or replicas from the junior sections of the local community clubs.

​Added the chairman:

“We are hoping as many people as possible will get down to support us on Sunday as we bid to get back to winning ways.”

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
