The Roughyeds


Gregson, Greenwood back in squad

​YOUNG hooker Jamie Greenwood and dual-reg forward Nick Gregson, from Leigh, are back in Oldham’s 19-man provisional squad for tomorrow’s game against West Wales Raiders at the Vestacare Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

They replace the injured Jack Spencer and Ritchie Hawkyard.

It will be interesting to see who gets the full-back role in the absence through injury of both Hawkyard and Kyran Johnson, but it will probably go one of the three half-backs in the 19 — Dave Hewitt, Adam Brook or Paul Crook — or to the versatile Jack Holmes, who has considerable experience of the centre, wing or full-back spots.

All eyes will be on new centre signing Cameron Leeming, who will be playing at the Vestacare Stadium for the first time, having played impressively at left-centre in his Oldham debut at Workington last week.

The 23-year-old former Hunslet, Keighley and Dewsbury centre has signed to the end of the season, during which time he hopes to do enough to earn a new deal for 2020.
Gregson played for the first time in the home win against Keighley Cougars, but he picked up a head injury which kept him out of the squad that travelled to Workington and recorded a 26-16 win last week.

It means that, with Leeming and Gregson in the spotlight, Roughyeds will be seeking their sixth win in their last seven Betfred League 1 outings.
The run started with a 72-8 win at West Wales at the end of April and produced further wins against Coventry at home (34-18), Keighley away (52-12), Keighley at home (28-4) and Workington away (26-16) against one defeat at Doncaster (0-31).

In total, Roughyeds have won eight of their 12 league games to date, losing to Workington at home (28-32), Newcastle away (28-22), Hunslet at home (28-36) and Doncaster away (31-0).

Only Hunslet, who don’t play this weekend, have a better for-and-against record than Roughyeds, who are certain to move up to the top two if they beat the Raiders tomorrow.

Squad: Aaronson, Bent, Bridge, Brook, Crook, Davies, Greenwood, Gregson, Hewitt, Holmes, Joy, Langtree, Law, Leeming, Maders, McComb, Owen, Whittel, Wilkinson.

A reminder that under-16s go free to this match and those adults who have half-price vouchers must remember to have them and present them at the turnstiles.

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.
