The Roughyeds


Season tickets

A reminder that 2020 season tickets will be available for collection from the club’s office inside the Vestacare Stadium at the following times this week:

Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10am to 3pm.

Any problems ring the office between those times on 07904 898177.

Season-ticket sales are up on last year and to facilitate the operation and to reduce the risk of any last-minute concerns at the Widnes game at Bower Fold next Sunday, February 2 (3pm) we hope as many fans as possible will pick up their season-ticket books from the office in advance.

Widnes, who took 600 fans to watch a very young Vikings side play at Rochdale a few weeks ago, have since completed pre-season wins against Castleford Tigers and North Wales Crusaders and expect to bring a black-and-white army to Bower Fold on the opening day of the Betfred Championship season.

Coached by famous Australian team boss Tim Sheens, their major signing of the close season was Matty Smith from Catalans Dragons who will bring tremendous experience to the Widnes halves.

On the banks of the Mersey they believe he could spearhead a genuine challenge for promotion.

Other signings include Josh Johnson from Warrington Wolves, Jake Spedding (Featherstone Rovers), Deon Cross (Barrow Raiders), Logan Tomkins (Salford Red Devils), Shane Grady (Halifax), Pat Moran (Warrington Wolves), Kenny Baker (North Wales Crusaders), Connor Dwyer (Thatto Heath) and Liam Cooper (St Helens).

Oldham boss Matt Diskin, who spent the last three years in the Championship with Batley Bulldogs, is not fazed.

“On the day anybody can beat anybody in this division,”

he said.

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!
