Adams’ Wembley message – Enjoy the Game

New RFL President Tony Adams has joined the coaches of the four clubs heading to Wembley tomorrow in urging supporters to show all that is good about the sport at its traditional showpiece occasion – and follow the Enjoy the Game campaign.

“Wembley is a special place,” said Adams, the former Arsenal and England captain who succeeded Andy Burnham in the ceremonial role of President last month, and will attend his first matches in that capacity on familiar territory.

“I played at the old stadium on numerous occasions, but this will be a new experience for me in a number of ways. I can’t wait.

“It’s an occasion for all of us to enjoy, whether that’s players, officials or supporters. Keep it simple – Enjoy the Game!”

The coaches of the Coral Challenge Cup finalists, Justin Holbrook of St Helens and Steve Price of Warrington Wolves, have echoed that message on their club digital channels – as have Sheffield Eagles legend Mark Aston and Widnes Vikings coach Kieron Purtill, whose teams will contest the first final of the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup for non-Super League clubs.

Ralph Rimmer, the chief executive of the Rugby Football League, said: “Wembley weekend is special for the game, and it’s the perfect stage for us to celebrate all that is good about Rugby League.

“We start with the Warners Champions School final between the Year Seven boys of Great Sankey and Standish, the traditional curtain-raiser known as the Steven Mullaney Memorial Match.

“Then we have one of the game’s great local rivalries, St Helens versus Warrington, played out at Wembley with the Challenge Cup at stake for the first time – with the action rounded off by a first 1895 Cup Final between two clubs with great Wembley memories of their own, Sheffield Eagles and Widnes Vikings.

“I’d like to thank the coaches of the four clubs for declaring their support for our Enjoy the Game campaign, along with our new President Tony Adams. It sets the tone for what should be a great weekend for Rugby League.”

Club Cash

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: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The 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!
