The Roughyeds


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.

Seat season-ticket holders can reserve usual seats by calling into the office with their season-ticket book and voucher D before 6pm on Wednesday, October 2. Payment will be by cash or cheque.

Seat and standing tickets will also be on sale (cash or cheque) at usual league-match prices.

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.
