The Roughyeds


Law Cup goes to Rochdale

​A limp, lethargic Oldham performance saw derby rivals Rochdale Hornets regain the Law Cup with an 18-12 win at the Crown Oil Arena where the match survived an early pitch inspection after heavy rain.

Showing far more tenacity and desire than the visitors, Hornets led 14-0 at half-time with tries by Lewis Sheridan, Sam Freeman and Andy Lea and one conversion by Freeman.

Roughyeds bucked up their ideas a bit in the second half and were soon only two points in arrears with tries by Dave Hewitt and Dan Abram, both converted by Abram.

Oldham owed much in the build-up to both tries to Danny Langtree and Matty Wilkinson.

Outstanding for Hornets were hooker Sean Penkywicz and right-wing Shaun Ainscough. who played the key role in three of the four Hornets tries.

Credit Hornets with the bottle to defend stoutly when Roughyeds seriously threatened to go in front and then to stretch their lead when more heroics by Ainscough near the touchline produced the decisive try for Luke Fowden.

Hornets deserved their win on a bitterly disappointing day for Oldham fans.

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.
