Next Roary’s Pride meeting on Saturday

THE next meeting of Roary’s Pride, the new supporters’ group for under-16s, will be held this coming Saturday, September 7,at the Vestacare Stadium, starting at 9am.

All members and parents are welcome as well as potential new members who would like to join. The annual membership fee is £10 and with that you get various goodies including a bright red Roary’s Pride hat which lets everyone know that you are proud to be a member and proud also of your rugby league club, your town, your family and yourself — that’s the message which Roary’s Pride organiser David Murgatroyd has adopted for the group from day one.

Saturday’s meeting will be the third since Pride was launched earlier this year.

The Fire Brigade and the Police took pride of place at the previous two meetings and the theme at Saturday’s meeting will be first-aiding with guidance provided by three fully-qualified first-aiders, namely Phil Black, the club’s Ground Safety Officer; his daughter Chloe and David Murgatroyd himself.

“We are all first-aid trainers — on a different note it’s good to know that there are first-aiders in the ground on match days — and we’ll be passing on basics to the children like how to put patients in the recovery position and other important things like how to ring for the emergency services etc.

“We’ll have a good time and a lot of fun but we’ll also have very useful information for the children to learn just in case they ever find themselves in a situation where they are the only ones present when somebody needs urgent help.”

Three players will pop in after training to talk to members, tell them about their careers and take part in the very popular ‘Yes,No” game which proved hilarious when tried out on other players at the first gwo meetings.

Trying to keep their wits about them this time will be Ritchie Hawkyard, Jamie Greenwood and Cameron Leeming, who will be in to visit the children after training for the following day’s big game at Hunslet.

There will be tea and coffee for parents and light refreshments for all.

We hope to see as many members, potential members and parents there as possible. ​That’s this Saturday, September 7, 9am at the Vestacare Stadium.

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.
