Whitehaven surge on

​WHITEHAVEN gave their Betfred League 1 title aspirations another massive boost today (Saturday) with an impressive 19-12 win at Hunslet.

In the only third-tier game of the weekend they went four points clear of second-placed Newcastle and five points clear of Oldham, in third place.

Newcastle and Oldham, each with a game in hand on the Cumbrians, clash at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday, August 11 (3pm) in a potentially cracking game which, at the very least, will go a long way towards determining which club finishes second or puts itself in a strong position in the event of Whitehaven surprisingly coming unstuck.

A second-place finish is also of immense value because it provides by far the easiest route through the play-offs and into the final.

The team finishing top goes up automatically, to be joined later by the winner of the five-club play-off.

Oldham’s next outing is at London Skolars next Saturday, August 3 (3pm) when Scott Naylor’s men take on a Skolars side strengthened by the extension of Mo Agoro’s loan agreement.

The Newcastle and former Oldham winger has scored two tries in three appearances for the Londoners, who have now extended his stay until the end of the season.

ORSA wishes to thank those fans who contributed to recent fund-raising initiatives at home games and thus provided the association with the money to fund the squad’s team-bonding outing to the Dog Bowl in Manchester, a New York-type venue that provides visitors with ten-pin bowling.

The players themselves were involved in the ORSA fund-raising activities in which fans contributed.

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.
