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

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!
