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.

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.
