The Roughyeds


How the Bulls see us

IT is always interesting, ahead of a big and important game, to look at how the opposition view you, and that definitely applies to the comments of Bradford’s interim chairman Eric Perez in his regular column in the Yorkshire city’s evening paper, the Telegraph and Argus.

Writes Eric:

“Our biggest game of the year is upon us. It’s just an hour or so away and across the border into Red Rose territory. (Stalybridge is in Cheshire but we won’t hold that against him).”

He goes on: “To say this is a ‘must win’ match would be calling it like it is.

“It is a massive turning point for us. It won’t make or break the season but matches against newly-promoted sides are pivotal and to say we need the points is an understatement.

“The Bulls have been unlucky not to take points from our first two league games this season (narrow defeats by London Broncos and Featherstone) and anyone who caught Oldham’s hard-fought away victory against Whitehaven on the OuRLeague app know this won’t be easy.

“A major factor could be high winds and difficult conditions. These are the great equaliser.

“A strong travelling contingent by the Bulls army might be what we need to put us on top”.

Oldham fans are advised to get to the ground early as they did when we were anticipating similar away support for the Widnes Vikings game on the opening day of the season.
The Bower Fold Events Centre opens at noon and from then until 2.30pm you can take advantage of a special offer — pie and a pint for £5.

The Events Centre, newly refurbished, is smart, hospitable and welcoming. Well worth a visit and an ideal venue for sharing the anticipation of a big game – and the banter — with both home and away fans. Rugby League at its best and how we know and love it.

After the game Oldham’s man-of-the-match presentation will also take place in there.

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.
