We pay the penalty for a poor start

OLDHAM conceded 18 points in the first ten minutes — and then “won” the next 70 minutes against Bradford Bulls at Bower Fold 12-8. It ended 26-12 to the Bulls.

“We were the better side for long spells, but that’s not worth much when you’re on the losing end. It’s frustrating, very frustrating,”

said coach Matt Diskin.

A couple of early handling errors by Oldham after Bulls kicks gave the visitors the field position to score two quick tries and there followed a third in the tenth minute.

After that Roughyeds more than held their own but they had left themselves a mountain to climb.

Danny Bridge scored Oldham’s two tries.

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.
