The Roughyeds


Gearing up for another big crowd

OLDHAM are again asking fans to turn up in good time when Bradford Bulls visit Bower Fold on Sunday (3pm) in the Roughyeds’ second home game in the Betfred Championship.

When Bulls were here in the corresponding fixture in 2017 the game attracted a crowd of 1,691 and that might be topped on Sunday given that Bradford have possibly the best away following in the division.

When Widnes were at Bower Fold on the opening day of the season there was an attendance of 1,726 — the Roughyeds’ biggest home league crowd for eight years.

Bradford’s visit will evoke memories of the last time when Oldham won 26-22 with tries by Adam Neal, Danny Langtree, Tuoyoto Egodo and Kieran Gill, plus Danny Leatherbarrow’s five goals from six shots and this line-up:

Lepori; Clay, Grimshaw, Gill, Egodo; Leatherbarrow, Hewitt; Neal, Gee, Mason, Langtree, Thompson, Spencer. Subs: Ward, Bent, Hughes, Davies.

It was Gill’s special try near the end which sealed Oldham’s win and plummeted Oldham Community Radio’s Gerald Brierley into local radio folklore because of his excited commentary which went viral on social media.

If Sunday’s game is half as good it will be a thriller in every sense of the word.

Bradford are already selling match tickets and travel packages, as Widnes did before their visit to Stalybridge on February 2.

To book hospitality places ring the Roughyeds office on 07904 898177.

The price is £40 per head which includes a two-course pre-match meal, a seat in the main stand, match-day programme, car parking, pre and post-match interviews and presentations with club officials and players and use of a pay bar before and after the game.


Anyone who would like to be a steward at home games is asked to contact club safety officer Phil Black on the club number (07904 898177) or via the enquiries form: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

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.
