Roughyeds are running a club trip to Wembley, the price of £65 a head including executive coach travel, a Club Wembley seat and the experience of taking part in the Wembley Parade around the perimeter of the famous stadium.
Our party will be proudly carrying the Oldham flag around one of the most iconic stadiums in the world on one of the biggest days in the Rugby League calendar.
