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.

WHAT’S MORE, BY SIGNING UP TO OurLeague, YOU’LL BE DIRECTLY ASSISTING THE OLDHAM CLUB AND ASSISTING YOUR CLUB IN VARIOUS WAYS AND IN ITS ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE RFL.

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 Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
