THE second Roary’s Pride meeting will be held next Saturday, June 22, in the social club at the Vestacare Stadium, starting at 9am.
Greater Manchester Police will be in attendance to talk to our young members about their community work, but we will also be proud and privileged to have two special guests who you can read about in Roughyed Review, the match-day programme which will be on sale at today’s (Sun) game against Keighley Cougars.
Pride members and their parents are all invited to this second meeting of our new supporters group which is led by David Murgatroyd with the help of Sophie Nixon and, of course, Roary whom we believe is the best mascot in rugby league.
We will also welcome new members and their parents if anyone wishes to turn up and join next Saturday morning.
Phil Joy, Kyran Johnson and a third player, not yet named, will also be present to mingle with members, sign autographs and talk about their early careers and how they started out on the first rung of the ladder to playing professionally.
‘Roughyed Review’ (the programme) is a 24-page, full colour magazine of news and views relating to all things Roughyeds.
You can read the views of Chris Hamilton and Scott Naylor, articles by Michael Turner, George Cowburn and Ian Wilson, news about a new sponsor (Shire Self Storage of Chadderton), news of our special flag bearers from Belarus and a two-page special by Dave Naylor on our opponents, Keighley Cougars.
Throw in pictures by Dave Murgatroyd and Dave Naylor and images from yesteryear by the Oldham RL Heritage Trust and we believe the ‘Review’ is a good read and full value for money at £3, especially for collectors and those who will treasure them in years to come.
If we beat Keighley we’ll move to third in the table behind Whitehaven and London Skolars.
Results in Betfred League 1 so far this weekend were: Hunslet 20, Doncaster 22; London Skolars 51, West Wales Raiders 6.
A win against Keighley will take us above Hunslet thanks to a better for-and-against points difference,
