The Roughyeds


Your club needs YOU in the Club Cash lottery

IN these critical and unprecedented times Oldham RLFC, like all other clubs, is having to live through a period of nil income through the turnstiles.

We cannot stress too much, therefore, how much the club’s future well-being will hinge to a large degree on the response we get to our current appeal for more fans to join our weekly Club Cash lottery.

Even before the current national and international crisis we wrote in the match-day programme for the Promotion Final against Newcastle Thunder at the Vestacare Stadium in October last year that we relied on funding from sources such as Club Cash to keep the club’s head above water.

That reliance is even more important now and the club is therefore repeating its recent appeal for more people to join Club Cash which costs only £1 a week.

Last August there was an increase in weekly prize money of approximately £1,275, taking the amount of guaranteed money to be won each week to £3,100, which includes a WEEKLY first prize of £2,000.

In addition to the guaranteed prize pot there’s a rollover jackpot of £500 a week which, if it isn’t won on any particular week, rises by £500 each week to a maximum of £10,000.

The guaranteed WEEKLY first prize went up from £1,000 to £2,000. The second prize remained the same, £250, and the third prize went down slightly from £125 to £100, but there is now a fourth prize of £50 and two prizes each of £25 plus 65 consolation prizes of £10 . . . and then there’s the jackpot, which isn’t to be sniffed at either.

You get all those chances to win for just £1 a week and that isn’t going up. You can’t get a cup of coffee for that!

The draw takes place every Wednesday and the results are given each week on the website

We can’t stress to much how important it is for the future well-being of the club to increase income from Club Cash.

We know all too well what happens when a club isn’t financially sustainable — remember 1997? — and even back in the days when we would have thought the current world-wide pandemic was something out of a science fiction film we learned from the world of football that there were financial crises at Bury FC and at Bolton Wanderers.

The world-wide threat to professional sport as we know it is here and it’s real so if you’re not a member of our Club Cash lottery please give serious consideration to joining now.

You can download a standing order form and instruct your bank to pay £4.35 monthly, £13 quarterly, £26 half-yearly or £52 annually.

You then send in the form to the club’s lottery co-ordinator John McAndrew at Oldham RLFC, Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Road, Oldham OL8 3JH.

Please do not send it to the bank. It needs to go to John at the club.

Alternatively, you can do a bank transfer of £10 or £20 to Oldham Rugby League Football Club, sort code 23-18-84, account number 19684341 and give your telephone number as a reference.

We will then contact you by phone when the money arrives to set up your lottery membership.

Many thank in anticipation of your support in these critical and unprecedented times.

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!
