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.

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!
