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in the 19 at Hunslet, but failed a fitness test before kick-off on a strained hamstring picked up at Coventry and was withdrawn late, his centre spot going to Jack Holmes.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

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!
