Jimmy Reynolds funeral details

​Jimmy Reynolds’ funeral will be held at Sacred Heart RC Church, Walmesley Road, Leigh WN7 1YE at 10.30am this Friday, January 10, 2020 with an evening reception, from 5.30pm, at the Spinners Arms, Firs Road, Leigh, WN7 4SB, phone 07731316331.

The family say Jimmy loved his playing days at Oldham and on Friday they would love to see any of his former team mates, members of the Ex-Players’ Association and supporters who remember him.

Any queries ring Mick Aspey on the above number.

A loose-forward who always played well above his weight, Jimmy scored 22 tries in 137 senior games for Oldham between 1970 and 1978 and, in the early part of the decade, played in a hugely successful side that featured players like Frank Foster, Cliff Hill, Ken Wilson, Kevin Taylor and Bob Irving, coached by Graham Starkey.

He was one of several Leigh lads at the club at that time, notably Martin Murphy, Tommy Davies and himself.

Full-back Murphy went on to play a post-war club record number of games for the club before finishing his career at Rochdale.

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.
