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.”

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.
