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.”

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.
