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.

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.
