The Roughyeds


Player Focus — Jamie Greenwood

Our next player focus is on our young hooker from Huddersfield Giants academy, Jamie Greenwood.

Jamie has been playing rugby for as long as he can remember — first at Siddal where he followed in the footsteps of his brothers, who are now in charge at Dewsbury. Lee, his elder brother, had a season at Oldham in the later stages of his playing career before he went into coaching.

Both brothers had a massive influence on their youngest sibling who was given little option but to follow them into rugby league.

Jamie came from the same amateur club as Zack McComb and when he had the opportunity to come to Oldham it was only natural that he should seek the opinions of brother Lee and Zack, both of whom spoke highly of the Roughyeds and of the club’s ethics and ambitions.

Both had only good things to say about Oldham and Jamie was left in no doubt that it was a good club where he would have a good chance of winning some honours.

Jamie’s rugby league hero is Phil Joy. Jamie described himself as ‘king of extras in the gym’ and ‘full time legend’.

The best player he has played against is former Halifax Elite Rugby Academy prop Titus ‘T-Bone’ Gwaze, who has been recalled by Wakefield Trinity after spending the first half of tihs season on loan at Oldham.

Of the current Oldham squad, he would take fellow Yorkshiremen McComb and Adam Brook to a desert island with him; McComb because he would ‘help to pass the time’ and Brook because he ‘knows everything about everything’ so he could organise a rescue and get them home.

When asked where Oldham will finish the season in terms of Betfred League 1 he said:

“We all want to finish top”

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.
