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 (email@example.com) 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
