State of Mind team at Sunday's game

OLDHAM RLFC will be proud and privileged to host a visit to the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday by representatives of State Of Mind Sport (SOMS) which was established in 2011 after the death of Wigan and Great Britain forward star Terry Newton, who had tragically taken his own life.

The State Of Mind organisation, in which Oldham-born Danny Sculthorpe is heavily involved, has completed a tour of Super League clubs and will now bring this Wellbeing initiative to an end at the Vestacere Stadium, which is rightly said to be a coup for the Oldham club.

Said Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton:

“Mental health is high on the pubic agenda at present so I’m asking fans who will be at our game against North Wales Crusaders on Sunday to go to their stall and see what they do — it could be vital to someone you know.”

A spokesman for SOMS added:

“We deliver mental health sessions across the country and have spoken to , more than 60,000 people in clubs, schools, colleges, universities and businesses plus others to police, fire and ambulance services.”

In the summer of 2018 State Of Mind Sport and the North-West Boroughs’ Healthcare NHS Trust broke the world record for the biggest audience at a meeting of its kind, held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington.

Three Oldhamers played key roles in the presentation — Danny Sculthorpe, Ian Knott and former Super League referee Ian Smith.

Club Cash Lottery

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there's never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why ? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back -- not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It's back this week and it's been won first time out, so next week's jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order -- our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to:

he easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
