Injury-hit Roughyeds slip to 36-6 defeat

IT was always going to be big ask, but nothing went Oldham’s way as they slipped to a 36-6 defeat by Widnes Vikings at Bower Fold in front of one of the biggest Roughyeds; home crowds for years — 1,726.

Already without four injured players, they suffered another blow on Saturday morning when Ed Smith, who was due to play at left centre, withdrew after picking up a back injury.

Then, during this defeat, they had captain Gareth Owen sin-binned in the first half and it was while he was off the field that Widnes scored 12 of their 16 first-half points that went unanswered.

In the second half Danny Bridge went off with a dislocated thumb and Lewis Charnock left the field after damaging a knee. It was later revealed that young centre James Worthington was to go to hospital for x-rays on a sore jaw.

One of the positives from the Roughyeds’ point of view was the massive contribution of young forwards Matthew Fletcher and Jimmy Beckett, both aged 20, who came off the bench before half-time to do a sterling job in the second half when their side was up against it.

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!
