The Roughyeds


Players running a mile for Brendan

IN a fabulous initiative launched by his old club Dewsbury Celtic, Oldham players, as well as others from clubs throughout rugby league territory, are running a mile and then nominating somebody else to do it, all in support of Roughyeds assistant coach Brendan Sheridan who is in hospital battling coronavirus.

The campaign is widely publicised and promoted on Twitter where players are taking selfies, giving out messages and then nominating somebody else to do the same either before or after their one-mile run.

In his message to Brendan, Cameron Leeming said: “Get well soon mate. We are all thinking about you. You’ll be back using this tripod again soon no doubt.”

Cameron then nominated Harry Aaronson to do something similar.

The Oldham club, meanwhile, repeated its earlier message of support to Brendan, who is the brother of Castleford Tigers No 2, Ryan Sheridan, and who was head coach at Dewsbury Celtic for several years before Matt Diskin invited him to become his right-hand man at Roughyeds.

Said Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton:

“Everyone at the club is thinking about him at this tough time for both him and his family.

“The family have been keeping me up to date with his situation by telephone.

“All our thoughts are with Brendan and his family and we wish him a speedy recovery.”

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!
