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.

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.
