Kay, Beckett fit after head tests

​WINGER Declan Kay and young prop Jimmy Beckett have passed head tests and are included in Oldham’s 19-man squad for tomorrow’s (Sun) big play-off clash against Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium (2pm kick-off).

On-loan Beckett, from Featherstone Rovers, was concussed at Coventry on September 1 and missed the game at Hunslet seven days later.

Kay, on loan from Rochdale, suffered similar injuries at Hunslet in a challenge for which home second-rower Nathan Chappell received a two-match ban.

There’s just one change in the Oldham 19, Beckett coming in for Luke Hooley, who wasn’t in the 17 at Hunslet.

Centre Cameron Leeming was in the 19 at Hunslet, but failed a fitness test before kick-off on a strained hamstring picked up at Coventry and was withdrawn late, his centre spot going to Jack Holmes.

Now fully fit, he keeps his place in the 19.

Squad: Beckett, Bent, Bridge, Crook, Davies, Hawkyard, Hewitt, Holmes, Johnson, Joy, Kay, Langtree, Law, Leeming, McComb, Owen, Spencer, Whittel, Wilkinson.

There’s to be a curtain-raiser to the big game, starting at noon and featuring St Anne’s under-7s and Limehurst Lions under-7s.


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.
