The Roughyeds


Only one change in 19

Scott Naylor is sticking more or less with the squad that won at London Skolars last week for tomorrow’s (Sunday) big clash with Newcastle Thunder at the Vestacare Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

There’s only one change in the 19, Paul Crook coming in for Lee Kershaw who has been recalled by his parent club, Wakefield Trinity.

Squad: Harry Aaronson, Liam Bent, Jimmy Beckett, Danny Bridge, Adam Brook, Paul Crook, Ritchie Hawkyard, Dave Hewitt, Kyran Johnson, Phil Joy, Danny Langtree, Scott Law, Cameron Leeming, Zack McComb, Gareth Owen, Ed Smith, Jack Spencer, Emmerson Whittel, Matty Wilkinson.

Smith and Beckett, who made their debuts in the win at London, are in line to play in front of a Vestacare crowd for the first time.

The other three new signings, Kiedan Hartley, Luke Hooley and Declan Kay, all signed on loan to the end of the season, will have to wait for their opportunities and will benefit from having more preparation time with the squad.

Crook’s inclusion, together with that of Adam Brook, will give Naylor the option of going for either youth or experience to combat the obvious threat of Quentin Laulu-Togagae or QLT as he is popularly known.

Big names in the Thunder squad are QLT, Keal Carlile at hooker, Liam McAvoy and Joel Edwards at prop, Kieran Gill in the centre, Misi Taulapapa on the wing and Lewis Young at full-back.

There will be a curtain-raiser between the under-7s of Waterhead and Westhoughton Lions, starting around 1.30pm and a second appearance of the season by Oldham Foodbank, which will graciously accept donations of tinned and other long-life foods.

Roughyeds are hoping for their best crowd of the season so far for what promises to be a gripping contest between second-placed Thunder, who will be seeking their eighth win in a row, and third-placed Oldham.

If Roughyeds were to win they would leapfrog Thunder in the Betfred League 1 table and move up to second, snapping at the heels of title favourites Whitehaven.

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.
