Widnes cup-tie date confirmation

OLDHAM RLFC can confirm that their Coral Challenge Cup fourth-round tie at Widnes Vikings will take place on Sunday, February 23 with a 3pm kick-off.

The same two teams met at the same stage of the Challenge Cup last season when Widnes won 54-14 at Bower Fold in front of a four-figure crowd.

This time they will go head-to-head at the DCBL Stadium just three weeks after beating Roughyeds 36-6 at Bower Fold (attendance 1,726) in the opening game of the 2020 Betfred Championship campaign.

The crowd that day attracted the biggest Roughyeds’ home league gate for several years, going back to 2008 when a Boundary Park crowd of 2,806 watched Roughyeds beat Doncaster 36-16 on their way to a third-place finish behind Gateshead Thunder and Barrow Raiders in National League Two.

Coached by Ellery Hanley, Doncaster were to avenge that defeat when, from a fourth-place finish, they beat Oldham 18-10 in the play-off Grand Final.

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!
