Ben Davies in for first time this season

PROP Ben Davies, one of our most experienced forwards, returns after getting over a back problem and is included for the first time this season in our 21-man squad for tomorrow’s fourth-round Challenge Cup tie at Widnes.

His inclusion in the squad for teenage centre Jack Croft, who played for us at Whitehaven last time out on dual-reg from Wakefield Trinity, is the only change in the 21.
Davies’s elevation means there are now only two players on the long-term casualty list, Jode Sherrife and Ed Smith.

Both have knee injuries. Sheriffe, who is waiting for an operation, was unlucky to be injured in training. Smith first felt this latest knee injury in the pre-season game against St Helens, but then aggravated it further in training.

He said:

“It’s the same knee as that on which I’ve had two big ops, but it’s nothing like as serious and it isn’t connected whatsoever with what happened before.
“It’s just a matter of time, rehab and treatment and hopefully I’ll be ready to play again in a few weeks.”

For obvious reasons, and with two big home games coming up in the Championship against Bradford Bulls and Dewsbury Rams at Bower Fold on March 1 and March 8, head coach Matt Diskin will be keeping fingers crossed that Davies comes through unscathed if he plays at Widnes tomorrow.

The latest 21-man squad also includes John Hutchings, out since he damaged a hamstring in the Law Cup match at Rochdale on January 12, and centre James Worthington, who has been out with a groin injury since the opening day of the Championship season against Widnes on February 2.

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.
