News from Barrow ahead of our pre-season game up there

​BARROW Raiders have issued the following statement regarding methods of ticket purchase for our pre-season warm-up game at Craven Park on Sunday, January 5, kick-off 2pm.

Barrow say:

“As part of our club’s ongoing improvement strategy we are changing the way that home fixture admission tickets are purchased.

“With effect from the first game of the 2020 playing season, match-day admission tickets will be available to purchase in the following ways:

“1: Online at www.barrowevents.co.uk<www.barrowevents.co.uk>. Tickets can either be printed at home or downloaded on to a mobile device. On arrival at the stadium, the ticket or the device will be scanned and validated at the designated admission gate(s) on Duke Street, allowing entry to the ground.

“2: From the ticket office at the Duke Street entrance on match days only from 1pm. Payment by cash, card or mobile device. Tickets purchased this way will also be scanned and validated at the designated admission gate(s) but it will be necessary to exit the ticket office and re-enter the stadium through the admission gate(s).

“This system is designed to improve the overall spectator experience as well as to help the club’s operation to run efficiently. Online purchase is the preferred option but if this is not possible for some fans they should please make sure they get to the ground early, well in advance of kick-off time to avoid unnecessary queuing.”

OUR Betfred Championship clash at Whitehaven on Sunday, February 16 — our third league game of the season — has been switched from an afternoon match to an evening kick-off for purposes of streaming by OuRLeague.

The head-to-head of the two clubs who were promoted this time from Betfred League 1 will now kick-off at 6.15pm.

Our home game against York City Knights at Bower Fold on Sunday, March 29 (3pm kick off) will also be screened by OuRLeague.

A full list of OuRLeague match coverage for the first few weeks of the season will be published in the New Year.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
