Want a lift to games at Bower Fold ?

Helping Us Help You!

Lend-A-Lift 2020

A new dawn, a new coach, new backroom staff, new players, new positivity and a new energy is flowing throughout the entire club.

With excitement building towards Oldham’s return to the Betfred Championship in 2020, the players are looking forward to pulling on the Roughyeds shirt; our objectives are clear; and your support is massively beneficial. We need you all at Bower Fold to support “your team”, writes JOHN DAVIES, a member of our management team.

Oldham RLFC is built up of players and staff but a club is nothing without its fabulous supporters. We have fans across the globe in Australia, New Zealand, Greece, America and Canada as well as lots of others across the UK and then the bulk of our support base living locally, naturally. We need you all in 2020.

The Championship takes us to Bower Fold, and with the support of our friends at Stalybridge Celtic we will make that tidy little ground, with all its first-class facilities, our home this year.

We at Oldham are conscious of our responsibility to reduce our carbon foot print and promote an “Eco-friendly” approach within our communities, Going green is an issue we take seriously and we are consistently looking at ways to operate in a manner that will protect, save and reduce the damage to our environment.

Oldham are thus excited to launch “Lend-A-Lift 2020”, the aim of which is to reduce our supporters’ carbon footprint but also, and equally importantly, to identify, promote and assist supporters in going to our home games at Bower Fold.

This community-focused approach will enable all supporters who wish to attend our games at Bower Fold the opportunity to do so.

Rugby League is the greatest sport on the planet and we are known for our family-friendly approach.

We at Oldham are committed to combating loneliness and addressing mental health issues in our communities. Loneliness impacts massively on people’s mental health and people within our communities suffer with mental health because they are lonely.

Club and Community can work together and “Lend-A-Lift 2020” will be scheme designed to promote togetherness with the intention of providing the opportunity for fans to support their team in 2020 at Bower Fold.

We would like you to register your interest with us if you:

  1. Require a lift to the match because you have no transport or don’t drive for whatever reason.
  2. Can offer a lift or lifts to a supporter in need.

By registering your interest at enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk, you will enable us to ensure that any fan who wishes to attend matches and support the club in 2020 has the opportunity to do so.

A club is its people so please help us to help you to support your team in 2020!

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.
