The Roughyeds


OuRLeague — where we are up to

As you probably know by now it is important for our club that we get as many people as possible signed up for the OuRLeague app as part of the RFL’s “return on investment” initiative.

To keep you updated, we can report that we are doing well . . . but we could do much better, hence the requirement to push OuRLeague membership even further among our fans and friends of the club.

It doesn’t cost anything to be a member but by joining and giving the information that OLDHAM is your club you are doing Roughyeds a huge favour.

For those who might not have heard of OuRLeague it’s a membership platform for all things Rugby League. Whether you’re a player, a fan, coach, volunteer official or a multiple of those, OuRLeague will cater for all your Rugby League needs and help you to get even more from the sport you love.

At the last count we had 1,581 members, more than double what we had last year and still rising. We have, however, dropped a place from 11th to 12th (out of 26) which shows that (a) other clubs are also working hard on this and (b) we need to keep pressing on and collecting more members.

We’re 400 or so down on the Betfred League 1 club with most members, but the flip side is that of the clubs underneath us no fewer than five are Championship clubs.

The top club overall has more than 8,000 members but the more realistic comparison for our purposes is our 1,581 alongside the Betfred League 1 best figures of 2,023.

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.
