February Challenge Cup date for Oldham

AS a Betfred Championship club, Oldham will enter the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup campaign at the fourth round stage over the weekend of February 22 and 23.

It will be a welcome break from the rigorous demands of the Championship which will see them open up with tough calls against Widnes Vikings at home, Toulouse Olympique away and fellow Championship new boys Whitehaven away before the Challenge Cup tie at the end of the month.

Saddleworth Rangers, the only local community club representatives in the Challenge Cup, make the relatively short journey into Yorkshire to play Halifax side Siddal in round one over the weekend of January 11 and 12.

The first-round tie between Skirlaugh and Hunslet Club Parkside will be shown live on BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport Online iPlayer and via the Red Button on Saturday, January 11(kick off 12.30pm).

And Our League members can watch the following day’s clash between the RAF and Bentley live at 1.30pm from RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire.

First-round ties will take place over the weekend of January, 11 and 12 with the second round scheduled for January 25 and 26 and the third for February 8 and 9 when semi-professional League 1 clubs enter the competition.

Championship clubs enter the fray two weeks later in round four, while four Super League clubs – Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR, Wakefield Trinity and Toronto Wolfpack – will enter at round five on the weekend of March 14 and 15.

BBC Sport and the Rugby Football League will each live stream one game from each of the first five rounds.

Matches shown by BBC will also be available on demand on iPlayer for 30 days. The remaining Super League clubs enter the competition at round six on the weekend of April 4 and 5, which is when matches will begin to be screened on BBC1 and BBC2.

The BBC will televise two quarter-finals on the weekend of 9-10 May, the two semi-finals on either 6 or 7 June and the Wembley Final on Saturday July 18.

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!
