The Roughyeds


Doncaster name their 19-man squad

​All the indications are that Doncaster will field a very similar team to that which won at Newcastle Thunder last week to set up tomorrow’s (Sun) big Betfred League 1 play-off clash against Oldham at the Vestacare Stadium, kick-off 2pm.

Please note the kick-off time — an hour earlier than usual because the game is to be screened live on the RFL’s OuRLeague app.

There is no cost involved in joining OuRLeague but membership numbers help the club in terms of RFL funding and provide you with a full and comprehensive service of rugby league news and features. When signing in please indicate at the appropriate place that you support Oldham.

There is nothing like being present, of course at live sport, and particularly at the sort of game and the sort of occasion we envisage at the Vestacare this weekend.
Sponsored by CDX Security of Warrington, the match will be handled by full-time Super League referee Liam Moore, an indication itself of the game’s importance, intensity and crowd appeal.

James Child will handle the other play off tie tomorrow, namely Newcastle Thunder v Workington Town, which kicks off at 4pm and will also be streamed live.

Among other sponsors and guests at the Oldham game will be a group from the Oldham Past Players’ Association and the Chief Executive of the RFL, Ralph Rimmer.

The winning team will go straight to the Grand Final on October 6, with promotion to the Championship as the ultimate prize, and the losers will get another chance next weekend against the winners of the Newcastle Thunder v Workington Town clash.

This is a real opportunity for rugby league fans in Oldham and surrounding areas to watch professional live rugby league on their doorstep.

It’s an all=pay, shared gate match with normal league match prices applying — adults £14, concessions £12, under-16s £2.

There will be an additional £2 transfer to seats for adults and concessions and a £3 transfer for under-16s.
Oldham’s 19-man squad will be announced shortly.

Doncaster have made two changes in their 19, Brandon Douglas and Connor Scott dropping out, to be replaced by Brad England and Joe Brown, who is on dual-registration from Hull FC.

Douglas was a sub last week and although Scott was in the 19 he didn’t play.

Of the 17 who beat Thunder 20-6 — and led 20-0 until a couple of minutes from the end — Douglas is the only omission for the big game at the Vestacare Stadium.

Squad: Beharrell, Boas, Bower, Boyle, Brown, Chase, Chrimes, Doherty, England, Halliday, Hedges, Howden, Kesik, Mariano, Nzoungou, Spiers, Tali, Washbrook, Wilkinson.

Curtain Raiser

There will be a curtain-raiser between St Anne’s under-7s and Limehurst Lions under-7s, kicking off at noon.

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.
