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.

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!
