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.


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.
