A message from the club to all fans

The decision to suspend all competition was a difficult one for everybody, but the correct decision was made.

For many, there will be far greater concerns than the club at this time, but we know how strong our bond is with supporters.

The local community and family are at the core of our values as a club, but they feel more important than ever at this moment.

A plan is being implemented to protect both playing and non-playing staff from the virus, to attempt to ensure the club survives the uncertainty, but uncertainty is the only answer that we currently have and it will test our resolve to the limit. Our loyal fan base will be vital during this period. Season ticket holders and lottery members, I cannot thank you enough.

Your continued support will be critical throughout this period devoid of game-day income and we urge you to continue showing your support whilst we are not playing.

Fans willing to support the club during this period can do so by joining our lottery. There are numerous ways to join the lottery. We have introduced new payment pathways for those willing to support the club in any way they can.

  • By downloading the standing order form off this site and returning to the club
  • By simply emailing (enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk) with the subject ‘join’ and your contact details and we will get in touch
  • By transferring either £10 or £20 to Account name (Oldham Rugby League Football Club) Sort Code (23-18-84) Account number (19684341) and putting a telephone number as a reference. We can then get in touch when the money arrives to set up your lottery membership.
  • Existing members who have a door to door collector can also transfer £10 or £20 to the bank account and put your telephone number as a reference and we will then update your membership.

Joining the lottery will not only help the club financially but you could also win some of the fantastic prizes that we have on offer. These include a weekly first prize of £2000, a rollover of up to £10,000 plus other great weekly prizes.

We are asking our existing members who pay through agents to please engage with the £10 or £20 and a telephone number to minimise agent contact. The telephone number is so that we can contact you as we would prefer to pay prizes directly.

Everybody associated with the club are going to carry on doing the best we can. Whether you’re social distancing, in self-isolation or just trying to act more conscientiously, continue to be your best self. Act with kindness, stay connected to those vulnerable or lonely and stay responsible.

Thank you on behalf of the club

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
