CDX 'delighted' to be our main sponsors in 2020

​OLDHAM Rugby League Club is pleased to announce that CDX Security will be the club’s main sponsors in the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

This outstanding Warrington-based family business, a national leader in the supply of security services across the UK, supported Roughyeds with various sponsorships in 2018 and 2019.

Managing director John Roddy said publicly before the Roughyeds’ Promotion Final that, win or lose, CDX would again be supporting Oldham RLFC and its chairman Chris Hamilton, a good friend, in 2020. ​ He has kept his word — and more. As the club’s main sponsor, CDX Security will be proud to have the company logo on the front of the Roughyeds’ 2020 playing shirts and replicas.

A former chairman of Leigh Centurions and Swinton Lions, John Roddy was awarded the Freedom of the City of London in 2014 for services to the Private Security Industry.

He and his director sons Christian and Elliot head an 11-strong management team behind a company which prides itself in refreshing the security industry with proactive management and innovative security solutions.

CDX was formed in 2012 to support organisations in the improvement of security operations, policies and protocols.

Based in Warrington, it is owned and run by the Roddy family which carries family values and leadership into the business.

Said John:

“Chris (Hamilton) and I go back a long way and as a former club chairman myself I acknowledge what he has done over more than 20 years to keep pro rugby league alive in Oldham.

“We enjoyed backing the club with various sponsorships last year and when we attended the two play-off games at the Vestacare Stadium we were really impressed by the club’s hospitality and the hospitality of the fans, who made us really welcome.

“We were delighted when we entered discussions with Chris for the 2020 main sponsorship and we’ll be proud to have the company logo on the front of the new shirts.”

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton: “We are delighted to have CDX on board as main sponsor for 2020.

“People will have seen instances of various sponsorships by CDX at different times last season in the run-up to promotion and it goes without saying how much that was appreciated.

“I’ve known John for several years. Our promotion to the Championship was celebrated by CDX and together we are looking forward to life in the higher division and strengthening our corporate partnership over the course of the season.”

The newly-promoted Roughyeds are currently advertising their many sponsorship packages under the strap line: ‘Take your business to a new level with Oldham RLFC‘.

Many packages are available, suiting all budgets and requirements.

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!
