Oldham RLFC

The Roughyeds


A fixture list to whet the appetite

​A SQUAD that includes new boys James Worthington, Lewis Charnock, John Hutchings and Jode Sheriffe, not to mention players who were on loan last season but are now fully contracted to Oldham, like Declan Kay, Harry Aaronson and Adam Brook, will be back in pre-season training next week.

With 18 players signed on currently, there will be more signings to come, including that of new head coach Matt Diskin’s assistant, whose arrival is thought to be imminent.

These are fascinating times in the Roughyeds camp with a big night coming up on Tuesday when former Leeds Rhinos star Diskin introduces himself and his new No 2 to a squad that is relishing the prospect of going head to head in the Championship with some of the biggest clubs outside Super League.

Visiting Bower Fold in the Championship will be London Broncos, Toulouse Olympique, Widnes Vikings, Bradford Bulls, Leigh Centurions, Featherstone Rovers, Sheffield Eagles, Halifax, Dewsbury, Batley, York, Swinton and Whitehaven.

Off the pitch we’ve got new kit suppliers in 1895 Sports and new main sponsors in the Warrington-based security firm CDX.

Then there’s Bower Fold waiting for us, a neat, compact little ground with ample seats, terracing and covered on all four sides.

It’s a pity we’re not playing in Oldham but, as had already been said, that’s the price of success and promotion and, in any event, the Stalybridge venue is only a few miles down the road.

Early Bird season tickets offer fans fantastic value for money and are available online until 11.59pm on Saturday, November 30 and in the office (cash or cheque only) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, between 10am and 3pm, up to Friday, November 29.

Before those deadlines you can get adult seating for £190 and adult standing for £170 — those work out at £15 and £13 a game over 13 home league games or, looking at it a different way, you watch 13 home games for the price of ten across the season.

There are discounts too after November 30 and up to the week before Christmas but to get the best deals and make the biggest savings you can’t beat Early Bird.

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.
