Cam’s in love again — with rugby league!

CAMERON Leeming signed for Oldham in June with two objectives — to help Roughyeds to win promotion and, in so doing, to rekindle his love of a sport with which he had become disillusioned.

He achieved both, so much so that he had no hesitation in signing a new one-year deal when opportunity knocked.

“I was at Dewsbury Rams for a spell in the early part of last season, but I was in and out of the team and, to be honest, I fell out with the game a bit,”

said the 24-year-old utility back who quickly made the left-centre berth his own at Oldham, scoring five tries and playing in ten of the last 11 games, including the Promotion Final.

The one game he missed was the hard-fought win at Hunslet in the final game of the regular Betfred League 1 season, a win which clinched a second-place finish.

He pulled a hamstring in the previous game at Coventry Bears and failed a fitness test only a short time before kick-off at the South Leeds Stadium seven days later.

The race was then on to get him back in action for the play-off clash with Doncaster two weeks later.

He played, kept his place in the final and the rest, as they say, is history.

Added Leeming:

“I struggled a bit with the hamstring in the last two games, but I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of my time in my first season at Oldham.

“It was fantastic to finish on such a high with promotion as the prize. That was the intention from the day I signed and I can honestly say Oldham have given me back the buzz I used to have about rugby league.

“I’ve played in the Championship and it is a big step up, but I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

Head coach Matt Diskin said:

” Cam is a good, strong three-quarter. He’s consistent and reliable and a player I’m looking forward to working with.”

Leeming’ signing takes to seven the number now contracted to Oldham for 2020 — Danny Langtree, Dave Hewitt, Kyran Johnson, Declan Kay, James Worthington, Danny Bridge and Leeming.

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.
