The Roughyeds


State of Mind

THE RFL’s State of Mind organisation has expressed its appreciation of the Oldham club’s willingness to participate in State of Mind awareness activities at last Sunday’s Betfred League 1 game against North Wales Crusaders.

Roughyeds players warmed up in State of Mind tee shirts — and a promotional stand at which State of Mind personnel met and chatted with fans of both clubs was set up inside the Vestacare Stadium.

Dr Phil Cooper, of State of Mind, has since sent this message to Ben Whisker, of the club’s management team:

“Just a short note to thank you for arranging the opportunity for us (State of Mind) to attend the game.

“We are extremely grateful to get a chance to speak to supporters; have the players warm-up in our tee shirts; and be treated so well by yourself and the club staff.

“Apologies I did not get chance to say goodbye.

“Please pass on our thanks to Chris (club chairman Christopher Hamilton) for his unstinting support of Rugby League in Oldham and for the opportunity he gave us today. He should be really proud of the set-up at the club.

“Please pass on our best wishes for the rest of the season.”

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.
