Another Featherstone youngster joins Oldham on loan

OLDHAM have beaten Friday’s signing deadline by securing the services on loan of a second Featherstone Rovers youngster.

Having secured 20-year-old prop Jimmy Beckett on a similar loan arrangement, Roughyeds have now signed his fellow Rovers team mate Kiedan Hartley, a 19-year-old winger or full-back.

Both are shown on the Rovers website as members of their first-team squad — and both have joined Oldham on loan to the end of the season.

A Leeds boy, Hartley played for amateurs East Leeds from the age of five before signing for Leeds Rhinos on scholarship at the age of 14.

He stepped up to the academy at the age of 16 and had two years at that level before joining Featherstone on a one-year deal that will soon be coming to an end.

He played for England Youth at under-15s and under-16s and although he’s been playing this season in the same Rovers reserves side as Beckett, he’s looking for more regular rugby at a more senior level, as is Beckett.

Said Hartley:

“I’m hoping to get more game time, playing week to week. I’ve done some research and I know Oldham will probably be in the play-offs and will be pushing for promotion.

“I’m really looking forward to being involved in all that.”

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!
