Oldham delight as Langtree-Bridge double-act remains intact

​ROUGHYEDS have beaten off competition from rival clubs to retain second-row star Danny Bridge for another year at least.

Now pushing for a place in Ireland’s pack for forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Spain and Italy, 26-year-old Bridge has kept faith with his hometown club despite opportunities to sign elsewhere.

Oldham Chairman Chris Hamilton said:

“There were a few clubs chasing him, but we are delighted to announce that Danny is staying here.

“It’s good to have him on board again which means we’ll retain our top second-row pairing of Bridge and Langtree.”

‘Langers’, the highest-scoring forward in Betfred League 1 last season, is on a deal that has another year to run.

Bridge has scored 16 tries in 36 games in his two seasons at Oldham, but 2020 will be his first in the Championship in Roughyeds colours and coach Matt Diskin will be looking to his mega second-row to make a big impact.

He said:

“Danny was one of the first players I wanted to re-sign when Chris (Hamilton) and I went through the squad shortly after my arrival at the club.

“He’s a very talented player whom I was fortunate to work with at Bradford at the back end of my playing career.

“He’s a leader and he’ll be up there with ‘Langers’ among the top five second-rowers in the Championship.”

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.
