OuRLeague cameras at Bower Fold

The big Betfred Championship game between Oldham and Bradford Bulls at Bower Fold tomorrow (Sunday) will be streamed exclusively live by OuRLeague, kicking off at 3pm.

Their cameras were due to show the Swinton Lions versus Leigh Centurions game, but when that was postponed earlier today the RFL took the decision to put the Oldham game on OuRLeague instead.

When our last Betfred Championship game at Whitehaven was shown on OuRLeague a fortnight ago it was watched by more than 6,000 fans — the third highest for a Championship game.

Anyone signing up for OuRLeague, and we would hope that anyone who can’t get to Bower Fold and who isn’t already signed on would do that — for FREE — should make a point of stating that Oldham is their favourite club.

The RFL collects each club’s OurLeague membership figures on a monthly basis and the more members we get the bigger and better are our benefits from the governing body.
When the last set of Championship and League 1 figures were released we were roughly half way up the table.

There is nothing better, of course, than watching the action live and backing the boys from the terraces or the seats, especially at Bower Fold which is covered on all four sides; has a first-class facility in the Bower Fold Events Centre; and is a fan-friendly ground even in inclement weather.

It’s also a fixture which we would normally expect to attract a big crowd, and thus produce a decent financial return at a time when every penny counts.

You could, of course, back the boys live, like some of you did in faraway places like Toulouse and Whitehaven, and still watch the OuRLeague version, with its commentary, re-winds and expert analysis when it is repeated later.

The choice is yours . . . but Matt Diskin and the boys who will be wearing the jersey against Bradford would love nothing better than to see you “in the flesh” and to hear your vocal support, led by Kevin, which is hugely appreciated by those who put their bodies on the line for the club and all it stands for.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
