THE Safeguard Group, a local firm based in Chadderton, entertained newly-promoted Oldham RL Club’s players and coaching staff to breakfast after training on Saturday.
“It was a fantastic gesture by Safeguard and one for which players, staff and club are really appreciative,”
said head coach Matt Diskin.
The coach’s sentiments were echoed by club chairman Chris Hamilton, who now heads a ten-strong managerial team which is keen to build partnerships and corporate friendships across the club’s catchment area.
The new Betfred Championship season starts with the visit of Widnes Vikings to Bower Fold, Stalybridge on Sunday, February 2 (3pm kick off) but before then Roughyeds go to Barrow Raiders on Sunday, January 5 (2pm) in a pre-season warm up and to Rochdale Hornets on January 12 (3pm) for the traditional Law Cup clash.
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.
