The Roughyeds


Big-game squads named

Five regulars who didn’t play against Coventry are included in Scott Naylor’s 19 for the “massive” game at Hunslet tomorrow (Sun), 3pm).

An Oldham win would, at the very least, secure a second-place finish in Betfred League 1 for Roughyeds, who are seeking their ninth win in ten outings.

Matty Wilkinson and Dave Hewitt were in last week’s 19 but didn’t play.

They are now joined by the addition of Ritchie Hawkyard, Zack McComb and Danny Bridge, who come in for Adam Brook, Jimmy Beckett and Jamie Greenwood.

Squad: Bent, Bridge, Crook, Davies, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Holmes, Hooley, Johnson, Joy, Kay, Langtree, Law, Leeming, McComb, Owen, Spencer, Whittell, Wilkinson.

Hunslet: Angrade, Chapman-Smith, Brown, Heckford, Lancaster, Watson, Potts, Ashton, Sanderson, Straugher, Emmett, Wright, Haley, Braham, Hawksworth, Hema, Halafihi, Nicklas, Chappell.

Adam Robinson, the former Oldham prop who led Hunslet to victory at the Vestacare Stadium last Easter, misses the big game because of a thumb injury.

Also out of coach Gary Thornton’s plans are Charlie Martin (knee injury), Jack Lee (hamstring) and two who are suspended, Dale Bloomfield and Josh Tonks.

Simon Brown and Danny Nicklas face late fitness tests but Jordan Andrade is back after suspension and Zack Braham returns after injury.

Although Robinson and Bloomfield are not included in the squad there is one ex-Oldham player, Tom Ashton, who will be up against former team mates, probably at centre.

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!
