Hooley, Kay in 19-man squad

OLDHAM new boys Declan Kay and Luke Hooley are included in Scott Naylor’s 19-man squad for tomorrow’s (Sunday) big game against Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium.

Their fellow newcomers Ed Smith and Jimmy Beckett, both forwards, played in the wins against London Skolars away and Newcastle Thunder at home.

They’ve kept their places in the 19 and they are now joined by on-loan backs Kay and Hooley, who come into the provisional squad for winger Harry Aaronson and the injured Jack Spencer.

Hooley (21) is well known to Roughyeds fans, having had two loan spells here previously.

The Wakefield Trinity youngster said:

“Oldham is a good place to be. I’m here to do a job and, hopefully, to help the other lads get the club back to where it belongs — in the Championship.”

Kay (22) can play on the wing but, like Hooley, is equally at home in the position he has played most — full-back.

A Wigan lad, he signed for Warrington at the age of 16 and has been at Rochdale for the past two years.

Squad: Beckett, Bent, Bridge, Brook, Crook, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Hooley, Johnson, Joy, Kay, Langtree, Law, Leeming, McComb, Owen, Smith, Whittel, Wilkinson.

The youngest of the five late signings, 19-year-old Kiedan Hartley of Featherstone Rovers, is still waiting for his opportunity, but with two more league games after tomorrow and then, in all probability, more matches in what promises to be a terrific play-off series it will surely come.

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.
