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 Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
