Awards Night on Friday, November 8

OUR end-of-season Players’ Awards Night will be held at the Vestacare Stadium on the evening of Friday, November 8.

It will be similar in format to previous years, but an added attraction this time will be an appearance as Music Man and DJ by the inimitable Ritchie ‘Titch’ Hawkyard, whose heroics at full-back last season earned him a place in the hearts of Roughyeds fans and contributed hugely to the team’s promotion to the Betfred Championship.

He wasn’t on his own by any means and there will be several candidates for each of the individual trophies on offer.

As always, we need the votes of fans to determine who wins the Supporters’ Player-of-the-Year award and with little time at our disposal we ask for nominations to be made online, like last year, by midnight on Friday, November 1.

Vote for your Player of the Year here but please be aware of the November 1 cut-off point.

Fans who don’t have access to the internet can post their nomination to: Players’ Awards, Oldham RLFC, Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Road, Limehurst Village, Oldham OL8 3JH (giving your name, address and contact number) or drop an envelope into the office by hand between 10am and 3pm on Friday (Oct 25), Monday (Oct 28), Wednesday (Oct 30) or Friday (Nov 1).

We will look back on Scott Naylor’s last year in charge which finished with 11 wins from the last 12 games — and a wonderful Promotion Final.

The ever-popular tombola and stand-up bingo will feature, but nothing will compare with the various award ceremonies.

It promises to be a fabulous Roughyeds evening with the price of a ticket, £15, including a pie and mash supper with a vegetarian option.

You can book and pay online at our online store or purchase your ticket by cash or cheque at the club office (days and times as above).

Please note that numbers will be limited and tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis.


Club Cash Lottery

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

he 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!
