Sky Sports to televise Summer Bash

Sky Sports have once again given a huge boost to Rugby League’s Betfred Championship, with confirmation that they will provide extensive and exclusive coverage of the annual Summer Bash in Blackpool in May (Saturday 30/Sunday 31 May).

Oldham play Swinton Lions on the Sunday with a 1pm kick-off and we urge all Roughyeds fans to please buy their tickets from us (details to be announced when they are available) because that will be of direct benefit to the Roughyeds club.

Building on the success of the previous five years, the seaside resort will host a weekend of exciting Betfred Championship action at Bloomfield Road which will include all six games being broadcast live on Sky Sports.

With the emphasis on local derbies, Batley Bulldogs and Dewsbury Rams will kick start the event at 3pm on the Saturday with the West Yorkshire derby and the highly anticipated clash between Halifax and York City Knights will follow at 5.15pm before Saturday concludes with Featherstone Rovers taking on old rivals Bradford Bulls at 7.30pm.

The TV cameras will then showcase Sunday’s mouth-watering fixtures, starting with the local derby between Swinton Lions and OLDHAM at 1pm, followed by Sheffield Eagles v Whitehaven at 3.15pm and culminating in Leigh Centurions v Widnes Vikings in a repeat of the most-watched fixture of 2019’s successful Bash weekend at 5.30pm.

Rugby Football League Chief Executive, Ralph Rimmer said:

“We are delighted that Sky Sports will be at Bloomfield Road to show all the action from the Betfred Championship Summer Bash. The weekend has become a highlight in the Rugby League calendar and we are sure the 2020 event will once again provide some great moments for the fans in the stadium and for those watching at home.

“With all six fixtures being shown live on Sky Sports it is great exposure for the competition and the clubs involved and we thank Betfred, Sky Sports and the clubs for all their continued support.”

Steve Smith, Executive Director of Content for Sky Sports, said:

“Sky Sports saw great interest in 2019 for the Summer Bash, it’s a compelling weekend of Rugby League action and our we look forward to bringing it to our customers once again in May.”

We can’t emphasis enough what a difference it will make to the Oldham club if Roughyeds fans or, indeed, anyone else in Oldham or elsewhere who has feelings for Roughyeds, buy their Summer Bash tickets from us. Full details will be announced soon.

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!
