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 Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
