The Roughyeds


Second-rower to reach career milestone

WHAT a game in which to reach 100 senior appearances

The ton-up milestone will be Danny Bridge’s in Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash between Betfred League 1 leaders Whitehaven and second-placed Oldham at the Recreation Ground.

“Haven are top now and if we beat them we’ll go top so a game doesn’t get much bigger than that,” said Roughyeds chief Scott Naylor.

On a personal note it’s an extra-special “biggie” for Oldham-born Bridge who, with Danny Langtree, is forming the most talked-about second-row outside of Super League.

In his 99th senior game last week he won the Roughyeds’ official man-of-the-match award, mainly for his strong creativity in bringing out the best in his left-side centre Cameron Leeming, who was on debut.

Leeming was with him at the post-match presentations as Magic Moment winner, on the back of his two tries on his home debut.

We didn’t know it at the time but Danny Boy Bridge, an Irish international, was on the verge of hitting his 100-game milestone with a career that reads like this:

OLDHAM (28 games to date); Rochdale Hornets (31), Featherstone Rovers (4); Bradford Bulls (8); Swinton Lions (21); Wigan Warriors (3); Ireland (4).

And talking of individual and team stats what about this which most fans wouldn’t have imagined?

There was once a time when Roughyeds found it difficult to lower the Cumbrian colours, but they will go into Sunday’s 1 v 2 clash up in the northern hills in the knowledge that the last six clashes have all finished in Oldham’s favour.

You have to go back to April, 2016 in the Championship to find a Haven win, 14-6 at the Recreation Ground.

Oldham have piled up 138 points to the Cumbrian club’s 42 in their last five meetings — a telling statistic.

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.
