Randstad backing Great Britain for return of Rugby League Lions

Global recruitment giants Randstad have joined the team supporting Great Britain in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea this autumn on the Rugby League Lions tour.

The Randstad logo will appear on the shorts of the GB team as part of a new commercial partnership with the Rugby Football League – starting with this Saturday’s game against a Tonga Invitational XIII in Hamilton, which will mark Great Britain’s return to the international Rugby League stage after a 12-year absence.

Adam Nicoll, Randstad’s UK Marketing Director, said:

“Randstad has a long history in partnering with successful sports institutions; from Juventus FC, Williams Martini Racing, the Dutch Olympic team, and Saracens Rugby Club, to building the World’s tallest clipper ship under sail, the Stad Amsterdam – a previous winner of the Tall Ships Race.

“Sponsoring the Great Britain Rugby League Lions on their tour against New Zealand, Tonga and Papua New Guinea sits very comfortably in that company and we are delighted to be a kit sponsor for a team with such heritage, ambition and esprit de corps.

“We wish these Lions the very best of luck this autumn and hope they return safely and victorious after a job well done.”

Randstad was founded in Amsterdam in 1960, expanded to London in 1967, and now provide outsourcing, staffing, consulting and workforce solutions to a wide range of businesses globally, becoming the world’s number 1 recruitment company last year.

Great Britain will return to the international Rugby League stage after a 12-year absence with Saturday’s international against a Tonga Invitational XIII in Hamilton.

That is followed by two Tests against New Zealand, at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday November 2 and Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch seven days later.

The tour concludes with Great Britain’s first trip to Papua New Guinea since 1996, as they face the Kumuls at the Oil Search Stadium in Port Moresby on Saturday November 16.

All four matches will be shown live on the BBC.

Mark Foster, the RFL’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Randstad to Rugby League, through this exciting partnership with Great Britain. The return of the Rugby League Lions has been a great story for the international game in 2019, so it’s fitting that we are able to work with such significant global partners.”

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.
