Two-try Bridge shines in 32-12 win

DANNY Bridge was outstanding in a six-try team performance as Oldham rattled a young but hugely talented St Helens Select side in a friendly at the Vestacare Stadium.

Fielding eight young first-team squad members and a raft of reserve-team players and Academy internationals, led around the field by the more experienced Matthew Costello, Paul Crook and Joe Batchelor, Saints led 12-10 before Roughyeds exploded into life in the last ten minutes.

Twenty-two late points with tries by Bridge (2), Kyran Johnson and Harry Aaronson, plus three conversions by Dave Hewitt rocked Saints and gave Roughyeds a 32-12 triumph.

The home side led 10-6 at half-time with tries out wide on the right by Declan Kay and James Worthington but Saints got their noses in front with a try by Costello and a goal by Dodd before Oldham launched their impressive late avalanche.

They’re clearly attempting to play a more expansive game at speed and when they get the execution right it’s exciting and exhilarating to watch.

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.
