The Roughyeds


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.

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.
