The Roughyeds


Wembley 2019


Hello, I need your help!

We are inviting ALL past Coral Challenge Cup finalists to this year’s final at Wembley Stadium.

This is a first for the sport of Rugby League and it’s driven by a desire to reinforce the heritage of this great competition and those that made it great.

We are reaching out to you in the hope that you may be able to relay the message to your database to help spread the word to more past finalists.

What’s in it for them?

All past finalists will receive two complimentary tickets, and we have secured Wembley Stadium’s new exclusive ‘Three Lions Bar’ to welcome and host everyone. Further discounted tickets can be accessed for families if they wish to make a day out of it for their loved ones.

Those past finalists in attendance will receive a warm welcome on the day and will be featured on a dedicated page in the matchday programme, while Wembley’s LED advertising boards will be used to celebrate their moment in history.

To sign up, all they need to do is go to rugby-league.com, head to the ‘Past Players’ section of the Challenge Cup website, leave their details, and their complimentary Cup final tickets will be sent out.

Or simply CLICK HERE to access the registration form.

Starting in 1896, the Coral Challenge Cup is the sport’s longest-running competition and is integral to the spiritual fabric of our game.

The final is played at Wembley – England’s National Stadium – and receives unparalleled media coverage, shown into over a million homes across the nation on the BBC.

With your help we are looking to make it a day to remember, a day when history is made.

Kind regards,

Robbie Hunter-Paul

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.
