Oldham surge into Betfred Championship as celebrations begin

The celebrations began within minutes of the hooter sounding the end of Oldham’s nerve-jangling 18-14 win against Newcastle Thunder in the Promotion Final at the Vestacare Stadium today.

A crowd of 1,204 watched the RFL’s Chris Brindley MBE present Roughyeds skipper Gareth Owen with the Promotion Trophy.

Club chairman Chris Hamilton couldn’t join the party on the pitch because he was on crutches following a knee operation but every single player climbed the wall to the stand to give him a hug and to show off the trophy.

Th players then did their post-match victory song on the pitch before applauding their fans.

Inside a heaving club-house, departing head coach Scott Naylor told fans: “Seven years is a long time, but I was keen to get the team back where it belongs and I think I can leave with my head held high.”

Celebrations looked like going on long into the night as Thunder headed for home.

Tries by Danny Langtree, Zack McComb and Jimmy Beckett, each one goaled by Paul Crook, gave Roughyeds an 18-14 win and elevated them into the Betfred Championship next year.

Full match report and lots more reaction to follow.

Club Cash

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

The 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!
