The Roughyeds


He laid down the Law all right !

IN his nine years at Keighley they called him the Law-Man and 33-year-old prop Scott Law lived up to his name in his one season at Oldham.

As the only Roughyeds ever-present in a 26-match cup and league programme in the never-to-be-forgotten 2019 promotion season, Scott certainly laid down the Law.

He’s retired now and emigrated to Australia but he wanted to sign off on a high and help Roughyeds win promotion to the Betfred Championship and he played a huge part in that, as did another one-season man from Keighley, Ritchie Hawkyard.

Top ten appearances were as follows: Law 26, Owen 25, Bent 24, McComb 24, Whittel 24, Hewitt 23, Spencer 23, Hawkyard 22, Joy 21, Wilkinson 20.

Given that Law, Owen, Whittel, Spencer, Joy and Wilkinson spent a lot of time on the bench, as props and hookers generally do in the modern game, it’s reasonable to assume that Bent, an exception to the general rule regarding forwards, McComb, Hewitt and Hawkyard probably spent the most time on the pitch across the season as a whole.

There were occasions when Bent was ‘spelled’ but there were also a lot of games when he went the full 80 with his second-rowers Danny Langtree and Danny Bridge.
We could talk also about Bent’s phenomenal tackle stats, but that’s another story for another day.

As for try scorers, ‘Langers’ was again on top with 18 (an average of one per game !), followed by McComb with 16 and Hawkyard with 12.

Top ten try scorers: Langtree 18, McComb 16, Hawkyard 12, Wilkinson 10, Hewitt 7, Johnson 7, Maders 7, Bridge 6, Crook 6, Holmes 6.

Goals: Crook 67, Hewitt 51 (plus a drop goal), Adam Brook 12.

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.
