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.

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.
