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 !

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!
