The Roughyeds


Heritage Trust Trophy up for grabs

​Michael Turner has confirmed that the Oldham RL Heritage Trust will again choose and present the Heritage Trust Trophy to the Roughyeds’ man of the match in Sunday’s Law Cup game at Rochdale (3pm kick-off).

The trophy, first presented in 2004, has been won by 11 players — seven backs and four forwards.

The first winner was scrum-half Ian Watson, now doing fabulously well as head coach of Salford Red Devils, whom he guided to Old Trafford as Super League Grand Finalists against mighty St Helens at the end of last season.

Other winners were Andy Isherwood (2005), James Kirkland (2006), James Coyle (2008), Gary Sykes (2010), Ben Wood (2011), Jamie Dallimore (2013), Josh Crowley (2016), Scott Leatherbarrow (2017), Matt Reid (2018) and Ritchie Hawkyard (2019).

Hawkyard’s successor in the Oldham side, new signing Dan Abram, scored two tries from full-back in Roughyeds’ 22-18 win at Barrow last Sunday and he will fancy his chances of lifting the man-of-the-match trophy if he can find the same form at the Crown Oil Arena.

John Hutchings also gave a stand-out performance, coming off the bench for two spells and suitably impressing coach Matt Diskin as a “middles” forward, driving and carrying the ball forward with strength and determination.

In his first game at this level, the 19-years-old former St Helens forward looked a very bright prospect.

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.
