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.

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.
