Sprint-ace Tim joins the team behind the team

TIM Abeyie, a former British National Indoor sprint champion, has joined Oldham as strength and conditioning coach for the newly-promoted club’s assault on the Championship in 2020.

Pictured in the middle of the above picture, he forms a three-man team behind the team, led by head coach Matt Diskin (left) and his assistant Brendan Sheridan.

Aged 37, and based in Leeds, he has worked in Germany as a personal trainer and also for Bradford Bulls, Halifax and Leeds Carnegie RUFC, now known as Yorkshire Carnegie.

He’s on a one-year agreement at Oldham with a view, he says, to staying longer if Roughyeds stay up and successfully negotiate the huge leap from Betfred League 1 to the Betfred Championship at the first attempt.

While the highlight of his sprint career was becoming British Indoor champion at 60 metres and 200 metres in 2006, he has also competed in the Commonwealth Games, the World Championships and the European and African Championships.

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.
