Scott names his 19-man squad

FIVE regular members of the Oldham side who didn’t play last week against Doncaster in the 1895 Cup are included in the 19 for the important Betfred League 1 clash with the same opponents at the Keepmoat Stadium tomorrow (Sunday), kick-off 5.30pm.

The game, which will be streamed live on the Our League app, is starting late because the stadium will be used for the completion of a 10K run in the afternoon.

Fans who can’t make the trip can watch it on Our League and those who haven’t yet signed up for this rugby league-dedicated app, which is free to join, can do Roughyeds a big favour by so doing and making sure you provide the information that Oldham is the club you support.

Zack McComb and Dave Hewitt were in last week’s provisional 19, but neither of them played.

They, plus Danny Bridge, Danny Langtree and Emmerson Whittel, are all included in the 19 for tomorrow to the exclusion of Paul Crook, Ben Calland and Jamie Greenwood.

Squad: Aaronson, Bent, Bowman, Bridge, Brook, Davies, Gwaze, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Holmes, Joy, Langtree, Law, Maders, McComb, Owen, Spencer, Whittel, Wilkinson.

Doncaster will be without dual-reg forward Levy Nzoungou, who is starting a two-match ban, but instead they will have another Hull FC player, Joe Brown, available.

They also have in the squad two players who were carrying knocks and didn’t play last week, namely top try scorer Connor Bower and Connor Scott.

Quoted in the Doncaster Free Press, The Dons’ assistant coach Pete Green summed up the game like this:

“Last week’s win will give us confidence. We showed we can open them up and if we had taken our chances we would have put more points on the board.

“Oldham will be a lot stronger though. They’ll have both second-rowers , Danny Bridge and Danny Langtree available again and they’ll make a big difference.

“They help to lay the foundations for a lot of what Oldham do in attack and they are both very direct with the ball.

“We know how good Danny Langtree can be from the time he spent with us on dual-reg from Hull earlier in the season.

“It’s a massive game for both sides and of the two games we’ll have had in the space of eight days I think this is the one both clubs want to win.

“I think it will be a different game to last week, more open, becaue the Keepmoat is a bigger pitch.”

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.
