The Roughyeds


Celebrate promotion with special leisure wear

CALLING all Roughyeds supporters — we’re going up in the world thanks to that brilliant run of 11 wins from 12 games which saw us finish second in Betfred League 1 2019 and then win two play-off games to clinch PROMOTION to the Betfred Championship 2020.

The win at Hunslet to seal second place was a triumph in itself for teamwork, dogged persistence, a fighting spirit and good, tough, rugged rugby.

But it was merely an aperitif for the thrilling play-off victories against Doncaster and Newcastle Thunder, followed by that emotional and never-to-be-forgotten team celebration after club captain Gareth Owen was presented with the Promotion Final trophy.

It was a fitting climax to a wonderful season and an achievement which we know our fans will be keen to remember by proudly wearing our brand-new commemorative tee-shirts and polos, which have been specially designed by our new kit and leisure wear partners, 1895 Sports.

Commemorative Polo and Tee Shirts

It’s quality gear to celebrate a quality achievement and you can order online or via the club which is open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10am to 3pm (Tel: 07904 898177).

The merchandise will be in stock within two weeks of ordering.

Tee-shirt sizes range from very small children (21″-22″) to 3XL (54″) with 11 different sizes in total which you can see on the website.

Prices are £12 for children’s sizes and £14 for adults.

Polos are in nine different sizes, ranging from extra-small (30″) to 5XL (59″), and they are all one price, £18. Again, go to the website to see the full range.

Special Offer

Some weeks ago we had a special offer on the website for fans who registered their interest in our 2020 season tickets for the Championship.

Fans who registered and have since purchased a season ticket will be emailed by the club and will be able to buy this striking commemorative leisure wear at a special price.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
