Parade of the new boys — and some who are not so new!

Declan Kay, Harry Aaronson and Adam Brook won’t feel like new boys, having played for Roughyeds last season while on loan from Rochdale, Swinton and Halifax respectively, but they are now fully-fledged Oldham players on contract and that’s a significant difference both for the players and the club.

You can say they are “real” Roughyeds now, as are the five “real” new boys, four of whom are pictured with Kay, Aaronson and Brook in this parade of new and not-so-new faces in a short break from pre-season training.

Matt Diskin’s five newcomers are 20-year-old outside backs James Worthington and John Hutchings from Wigan and St Helens respectively and the more experienced Jode Sheriffe, a prop from Dewsbury, Lewis Charnock, a half-back or loose-forward from Barrow Raiders and Dan Abram (24), whose last club was Rochdale and who plays equally well at full-back, half-back or hooker.

Only Sheriffe (inset) is absent from the picture — and even he wasn’t far away as new-look Roughyeds got stuck into pre-season training ahead of their forthcoming return to the Betfred Championship.

Left to right: Kay, Worthington, Hutchings, Charnock, Abram, Aaronson, Brook.

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
