Oldham swoop for centre Cameron Leeming

​OLDHAM have signed centre Cameron Leeming (23), who has played at Hunslet, Keighley and Dewsbury since coming back to the UK from a spell in Australia.

He has signed initially to November 30 this year with a view to doing a new deal for 2020, hopefully in the Betfred Championship.

A personal trainer and based in Leeds, Leeming will train with Roughyeds for the first time tomorrow, meet up with former team mates Ritchie Hawkyard, Scott Law, Emmerson Whittel and on-loan Harry Aaronson and be “in the mix” for Sunday’s game at Workington.

Said Roughyeds head coach Scott Naylor:

“There aren’t a lot of centres around but we looked at Cameron last year and we tried to sign him again earlier this season.

“We had three or four lads who could play centre but we’re down to the bare bones now so we needed to strengthen that position for the second half of the season.

“We’re grateful to Dewsbury for letting us do the deal.

“Cameron will be with us tomorrow night and he’ll be in the mix for Sunday.”

Leeming played for Leeds amateurs Stanningley as a boy and then had four years in the Leeds Rhinos youth set-up before moving on to Wakefield Academy.

A year followed in Australia, playing for a Sydney Roosters feeder club, and he has since played for Hunslet and Keighley in tier three and Dewsbury in the Championship.

Earlier this season he suffered concussion and a broken jaw while playing for the Rams against Thatto Heath in the Coral Challenge Cup, but he says he is now fully fit and ready to go.

“I’m a personal trainer so fitness is part of my life,”

he said.

He added:

“I played a handful of games at Dewsbury but I was a bit in and out — the injury didn’t help — and I was looking for a fresh start with a club like Oldham who are going to be fighting for promotion.

“Hopefully we’ll get promotion and I’ll have done enough to re-sign for next year. At the very least I hope to do enough to be playing every week.

“I know a few of the lads from Keighley and I know Zack McComb a little bit so there will be a few familiar faces there and that always helps.”

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.
