Bridge in 22-man Irish squad

​DANNY Bridge, who has signed a new one-year contract at Oldham, has survived the cut and is included in coach Stuart Littler’s 22-man Ireland squad for World Cup qualifiers against Spain and Italy.

They play Spain away on Saturday and Italy in Dublin on November 9 in a bid to go forward to World Cup 2021, which will be held in England.

Bridge’s Irish selection comes in the week that Oldham’s new head coach Matt Diskin described him and his Roughyeds second-row partner Danny Langtree as among the top five second-rowers in the Betfred Championship.

Centre Zack McComb, who has left Oldham to sign for Sheffield Eagles, has been fast-tracked into the 22, which also includes former Roughyeds players Michael Ward (Batley) and Greg McNally (Leigh).

Others in the squad include Tyrone McCarthy (Salford), James Bentley (St Helens), Bob Beswick (Toronto), George King (Wakefield) and Liam Byrne (Wigan).

Boundary Park Visit

THE Oldham club wishes to publicly thank Oldham Athletic for the invitation to attend Tuesday night’s game against Walsall at Boundary Park, which Latics won 2-0 with goals by man-of-the-match Scott Wilson and Desire Segbe Azankpo.

Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton and half a dozen players, headed by club captain Gareth Owen, were invited on to the pitch before kick-off, introduced to the crowd, and congratulated for their achievement in winning promotion to the Betfred Championship.

Other players in attendance included Ritchie Hawkyard, Jack Spencer, Cameron Leeming, Phil Joy and Harry Aaronson, who scored four tries in nine appearances while on loan from Swinton Lions.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
