The Roughyeds


Player focus – Scott Law

After signing for Oldham at the start of this season experienced prop Scott Law has already become a firm favourite of the Vestacare Stadium crowd.

His rugby journey started at the age of 13 when he ‘fell into it’ through the influence of school friends.

Even before that, though, Scott was always interested in rugby because his dad played the game.

After playing more than 200 games for Keighley in a long career at Cougar Park, and winning the Cougars’ player-of-the-year award last season, Scott came to Oldham in pursuit of a new challenge and because he wanted to be part of a team that was challenging for promotion.

So far this season the 34-year-old has made an ever-present 14 appearances for the Roughyeds and is still going strong. Only Jack Spencer can match that ‘every game’ record.
Scott would describe himself as the ‘old one’ of the team, drawing on his experience to do ‘the little things right and lead by example.’

Away from rugby league, he is kept busy with work and his three children so he has little time for other hobbies. His hero off the field is former footballing powerhouse Sir Alex Ferguson.

He has come across too many good players to name a rugby hero but the best player he has ever played against is ex-England and Great Britain international prop or second rower Adrian Morley.

Scott would describe himself as ‘quiet, experienced and hard-working.

His choice of squad member to take to a desert island would be fellow Keighley convert Anthony Bowman as, in Scott’s words, ‘he probably wouldn’t show up anyway so I could enjoy the quiet time alone!’

Scott’s thoughts on the season so far?

He said:

It’s been mixed to say the least. I think we’re still just about finding our feet with a lot of new players this year. We’ve identified the negative parts of our game so we need to remedy those and build on the many positives.

“If we do that, we can build some real momentum going into the business part of the season.”

As the “old head” in our pack, Scott is confident Oldham will finish in the top two at the end of the regular season.

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.
