The Roughyeds


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.

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!
