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.”

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.
