The Roughyeds


Third now, but still the top scorers

​Newcastle Thunder’s 34-16 win against London Skolars at Kingston Park lifted the Geordie boys to second place and pushed us down to third in the mad scramble at the top of Betfred League 1.

It means our clash with Newcastle at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday, August 11 in our next home game will be crucial in the continuing battle for first or second place.

Thunder are already advertising the game as one of their biggest in recent years and are planning to run coaches to Oldham in an attempt to get a large following at the Vestacare Stadium.

“The Thunder Army will be mobilising its support,”

claims the club.

“As a clash between the two nearest challengers to table-toppers Whitehaven, it’s a game that is shaping up to be absolutely pivotal in the title aspirations of both clubs.”

Though Roughyeds are now third they’re still the division’s top scorers, having amassed a total of 488 points to Newcastle’s 487!

There was a shock in the other Betfred League 1 game today when West Wales Raiders beat Coventry Bears 44-16 in Llanelli to chalk up their first win of the season.

Tomorrow’s games are North Wales Crusaders v Doncaster and Workington Town v Keighley Cougars.

With five games remaining, Oldham go to London Skolars on Saturday, August 3 and then play two crucial home games against Newcastle on Sunday, August 11 and Doncaster on Sunday, August 18.

They bring the regular season to a close with successive away games at Coventry on September 1 and Hunslet on September 8.

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.
