Chris welcomes new media partnership

​OLDHAM RLFC is delighted to announce a new partnership with Quest Media Network who own the Oldham Reporter, Tameside Reporter and Glossop Chronicle as well as Tameside Radio 103.6.

The 12-month deal, which will see the Oldham Reporter logo on the right breast of the club’s new playing and replica kits, will also see both parties working on a number of different ideas.

It was welcomed by club chairman Chris Hamilton who said:

“This is a very welcome addition to our portfolio of commercial partners and we are sure we can bring a lot to the partnership. We have worked with Quest before and to now formalise a deal not only cements our work with them but provides several new opportunities for both of us moving forward.

“Playing out of Stalybridge Celtic’s ground next season in the Betfred Championship is a great chance for us to tap into a different potential fan base and this is one of the areas that, with Quest, we will be working on developing.

“In addition, the opportunity to get more radio exposure and podcast content will expand what we are currently doing and we are very much looking forward to working together with everybody.”

Mark Philip, Head of Sport at Quest Media Network, said: “I’m delighted the Oldham Reporter has become an official media partner of Oldham RLFC for the 2020 season.

“Quest Media Network followed the club’s journey very closely last season and featured match reports and general updates in our weekly newspapers, the Oldham Reporter and the Tameside Reporter.

“We were thrilled when the club secured promotion to the Betfred Championship in October and, as a result of that, we approached them in the week that followed to further cement our relationship.

“As part of our new agreement we will provide comprehensive and some exclusive coverage across all our platforms — on air, online and in print — to keep the Oldham faithful informed and entertained .

“We are particularly excited to promote the club via Tameside Radio on our ‘Saturday Sport’ show, sponsored by Betfred.

“Ultimately, we’re looking forward to playing a part in what will hopefully be another memorable season for this great club.”

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.
