The Roughyeds


Hewitt shines as Oldham clinch narrow victory

​Scrum-half Dave Hewitt scored 11 of Oldham’s 15 points as the Roughyeds prevailed 15-14 against Skolars in a tense, tight game at the New River Stadium in north London.

​Centre Cam Leeming opened Oldham’s account wit a hard-earned try in the corner, but after that Hewitt took command to convert off the touchline; to score the next try himself and convert it; to land a penalty goal from near half-way; and to score Oldham’s only point in the second half with a drop goal that was ultimately to prove decisive.

Both Skolars tries were long-range breakaway efforts scored by speed men Iliess Macani and Omari Caro, both of whom burned up the metres to leave trailing defenders in their wake.

Roughyeds new boys Ed Smith and Jimmy Beckett made club debuts off the bench and both looked good as Scott Naylor’s men kept hold of third place in Betfred League 1 and set things up nicely for two massive home games on August 11 and 18 respectively against Newcastle Thunder and Doncaster.

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.
