The Roughyeds


Player Focus . . . Cameron Leeming

Our next player focus is on recent signing Cameron Leeming.

Since signing for Oldham in June this year Cameron has already scored five tries in seven appearances.

A boy who found football difficult, he took up rugby league at the age of nine when a school friend persuaded him to have a go at the 13-a-side code.

He liked it — and he’s liked it ever since, writes JENNY McGRANE.

A product of the Stanningley club in Leeds, Leeming later joined Wakefield Trinity’s academy and then had spells with Hunslet and Keighley Cougars before joining Dewsbury and then Oldham.

His hero is his Oldham team mate Emmerson Whittel ‘for always being enthusiastic and happy all the time around training and on match days’.

Away from rugby, Cameron usually spends his Saturdays following Leeds United. He knows that some Oldham fans won’t be too impressed with that !

Although relatively new to the Roughyeds squad, he has settled in well and is enjoying working hard.

He would describe himself as Mr Greedy, adding: ”

I eat far too much and I’ve got a sweet tooth !”

If he was to take a team mate to a desert island it would be Adam Brook. He explained:

“Adam would have figured out a way to get us off the island within an hour, No doubt about that.”

Cameron’s thoughts on the season so far ?

He said:

“I can only comment on the last six games, five of which we’ve won so it’s been an enjoyable start for me. It was frustrating to lose at Whitehaven because we could have won, but we will see how it all ends up.

“Realistically, it looks like we’ll be in the play-offs, but the way we played against Newcastle showed that we have no need to fear anyone .

“No one will want to play us at the Vestacare so, at the very least, we should secure second position.”

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!
