Oldham go down 52-12 in Widnes cup-tie

Roughyeds always knew they would face a big ask in their fourth-round Coral Challenge Cup tie at Widnes Vikings and so it proved when they conceded nine tries in a 52-12 defeat.

Matt Diskin’s men couldn’t play dual-reg centre Jack Croft and on-loan forwards Jimmy Beckett and Titus Gwaze because they would have been cup-tied and unable to play for their parent clubs if required to do so later in the competition.

Dan Abram and Danny Langtree scored Oldham tries, but Widnes started off like a house on fire, aided and abetted by weak Oldham tackling and defensive work, and led 30-6 at half-time before adding another 22 points in the second half.

It was 52-6 before Langtree picked up a loose ball on the last play of the game to score a simple try which Abram converted — his second goal of the afternoon.

Full report to follow.

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!
