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.

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
