The Roughyeds


Player Focus – Adam Brook

Our next player focus is on Adam Brook.

Adam joined Oldham at the start of the season on a season-long loan from his home-town team Halifax, from which club he had also been out on dual-reg with Newcastle Thunder.
In previous seasons he also played for Keighley Cougars and for Bradford Bulls between 2013-2015.

He played several sports as a boy, but chose rugby league to pursue seriously because he preferred it to the others and there were a lot of disciplines within it that appealed to him, writes JENNY McGRANE.

When the opportunity arose to go out on long-term loan from Halifax he opted to join Roughyeds because he has friends here and we were a team that was pushing for promotion.
He added:

“I always wanted to play at the highest standard I could get and Oldham was a great platform for that.”

Adam’s rugby hero is his Dad, who is still playing at the age of 45 and never leaves anything on the pitch.

In the wider world he puts Mum on a pedestal because she has been through some tough times and always comes out stronger on the other side.

His hobbies are golf, NFL and NBA.

Adam describes himself as the team talker,who will ‘talk to everybody and anybody that will listen or at least pretend to listen’.

The best player he has played against is Wigan stand-off George Williams.

He would take Scott Law to a desert island because he is the closest we’ve got to a Caveman so he would hopefully keep them alive.

Thoughts on the season so far?

He said:

“It’s been frustrating from both a personal and a team point of view. It didn’t help when I got injured early in the year. We could have done a lot better but it looks like we’ve a good chance of finishing second which will be good going into the play-offs.”

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
