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.

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.
