Final showdown with Newcastle or Doncaster

​OLDHAM’S Promotion Final for the right to be in the Betfred Championship next season will be against Newcastle Thunder or Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday week, October 6, kick-off 3pm.

The opposition will be confirmed on Sunday when Thunder and Doncaster have a rematch of their earlier play-off tie in Newcastle which Doncaster won 20-6.

Roughyeds beat Newcastle at home 28-20 in a Betfred League 1 fixture on August 11 and they have since beaten Doncaster twice 40-14 on August 18 in the league and 22-12 in the play-off series last weekend.

The club will have hospitality places available for the final at a cost of £35 a head which includes a seat for the game, three-course food, pre and post-match interviews and presentations, programme, team sheet and access to a pay bar.

To book fans can call the office on 07904 898177 during office opening times or via the enquiries email address which is given on the website.

Normal admission prices will apply and although the game is NOT all-ticket fans can buy tickets in advance from 10am on Wednesday, September 25.

A much bigger crowd than usual is anticipated and advance ticket sales will make things easier for club and spectators on the day of the game.

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.
