The Roughyeds


Watch our game at Whitehaven in the comfort of your own home

MANY of you will know this already, but there may be a lot more rugby league fans in the Oldham and Tameside areas who don’t . . . you can watch the Roughyeds very important game at Whitehaven this Sunday evening in the comfort of your own home and for FREE.

The game will be streamed live on the RFL’s OuRLeague app and those fans who are already linked up with OuRLeague and watch, among lots of other things, the many matches that are covered live will tell you that the presentation is very professional with full commentary and excellent camera work.

If you’ve got a laptop, PC, tablet, smart phone or any other device that links you with the internet just go to the Roughyeds website, follow the OuRLeague links, please make sure you name Oldham RLFC as your team, and, hey presto, you’ll be ready and set to go when the game kicks-off at 6.15pm tomorrow (Sunday) evening.

How good is that? For FREE, and without leaving the comfort and warmth of your favourite chair, you’ll be whisked away to the Recreation Ground to watch, together with excellent analysis, a key Betfred Championship tussle between the two teams that finished first and second in Betfred League 1 last season and ultimately got promoted, Whitehaven automatically and Oldham via the play-offs with those excellent home performances against Doncaster and Newcastle Thunder.


Streaming is widely recognised by many sports as the way forward in this rapidly-changing and technological world and the RFL fully recognises that, to such an extent that each month it sends out to clubs in the Championship and League 1 updates in relation to OuRLeague membership figures at each club.

The most recent set of figures showed that, out of the 24 clubs involved, we were placed 12th — exactly half way — but with still plenty of room for improvement.

With a big push this weekend —an ideal time to do it given that we probably won’t take big numbers to Whitehaven because of the weather forecast and the evening kick-off — we could easily move up two places , thus earning not only brownie points at HQ but even more relevant features towards the future well-being of the club.

So if you’re not already signed up to OurLeague please do it at your earliest convenience and then you can watch us do battle at Whitehaven tomorrow evening.
Matt Diskin sees this game as the start of our season . . . and it’s one that’s not to be missed !

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.
