The Roughyeds


Oldham Reporter

​THE free weekly newspaper, the Oldham Reporter, is carrying a four-page Oldham RLFC pull-out in this week’s edition on the eve of the new Betfred Championship.

The Reporter is part of the Quest Media Group, with whom Roughyeds are in commercial partnership.

Quest Media also own the Tameside Reporter, the Glossop Chronicle and Tameside Radio, all of which will be covering Roughyeds in the coming season, given that all home games will be played on Stalybridge Celtic’s Bower Fold ground , half way up the hill on Mottram Road.

The Tameside Reporter and the Glossop Chronicle will also feature the four-page Oldham RLFC special.

The season begins on Sunday (3pm) when newly-promoted Oldham are at home to Widnes Vikings, who expect to bring between 500 and 800 supporters to Stalybridge.

Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton gives his thoughts on the new season in an interview on Tameside Radio’s social media platforms.

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.
