Roughyeds power their way to Promotion Final

​IN-FORM Oldham produced power play of the highest order at the Vestacare Stadium to surge to within 80 minutes of promotion to the Betfred Championship with a 22-12 win against Doncaster in a Betfred League 1 play-off semi-final.

Roughyeds now go straight through to the final on Sunday, October 6 which will also be played at the Vestacare Stadium.

In recording their tenth win in 11 games, Roughyeds tackled tenaciously from start to finish and scored tries by David Hewitt, Emmerson Whittel and Paul Crook, who also kicked five goals, including a penalty from near half way.

“It was a great performance,” said coach Scott Naylor. “We were top-class defensively and we did the little things that make all the difference — the one per cent things — really well.

“It was close to the complete performance. We’re coming good at the right time, but there’s still some improvement in us.”

Newcastle Thunder beat Workington Town 38-18 in the other semi-final and the Tynesiders now face a rematch with Doncaster next weekend for the right to come to Oldham in the Promotion Final on October 6.

Details of the big game will be announced as soon as they are known.

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!
