The Roughyeds


Betfred Championship and League 1 Awards

OLDHAM coach Scott Naylor and second-row star Danny Langtree are in line to have the spotlight placed upon them at the Betfred Championship and League 1 awards dinner in Manchester which will be screened live on the OuRLeague app next Tuesday, September 24.

Scott is one of three nominees for the League 1 coach-of-the-year accolade, alongside Gary Charlton of Whitehaven, who won the Betfred League 1 title, and Anthony Murray of North Wales Crusaders.

Langtree is in line for the Betfred League 1 player-of-the-year prize in competition with Dion Aiye (Whitehaven), Nick Newman (Newcastle Thunder) and Marc Shackley, also of Whitehaven.

Naylor, who leaves Roughyeds at the end of the season after seven seasons in charge, won the award in 2015 when he guided Oldham to promotion from League 1 to the Championship.

They were up there in 2016 and 2017 but they were then relegated back to the third tier after suffering a horrendous injury pile-up in the second half of the 2017 campaign.

After two seasons back in League 1 they are currently two play-off wins away from another tilt at the Championship. They play Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday (2pm kick-off) and the winners will go through to the final on October 6.

Langtree, who is contracted to Roughyeds for another season, has been at Oldham for even longer than the boss apart from half-a-season’s stay at Super League Hull FC earlier this year.

The free-scoring second-row man began life at Oldham in the reserves but quickly became a first-team regular under Naylor’s tutelage and has gone from strength to strength over the last few years.

There are five nominees for League 1 Young player of the year (21 or under at the start of the 2019 campaign).

They are Caine Barnes (Workington), Andrew Bulman (Whitehaven), Alex Clegg (Newcastle), Callum Hazzard (North Wales) and Jacob Jones (Coventry Bears).

Barnes and Hazzard are on long-term loans with their League 1 clubs from Wigan and St Helens respectively.

Championship nominations are as follows:

Player of the Year: Andy Ackers, Gareth O’Brien, Jon Wilkin (all Toronto Wolfpack).
Young Player of the year: Matty Ashton (Swinton Lions), Keanan Brand (Widnes Vikings), Joe Cator (Leigh Centurions).
Coach of the Year: Mark Aston (Sheffield Eagles), James Ford (York City Knights), Brian McDermott (Toronto Wolfpack).

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!
