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).

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.
