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.

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!
