The Roughyeds


Massive thanks to all concerned

We wish to give a massive thank-you to everyone who got involved in our re-run of the 2019 Promotion Final win against Newcastle Thunder.

We won again, would you believe!

And the icing on this particular cake was to see and hear, on our Twitter platform, so many supporters obviously thoroughly enjoying their involvement with the club and the players again during these difficult times.

A big thank-you to CDX Security, our main sponsors, for again backing the retro presentation and to The Property Buying Company as match-ball sponsors of the virtual event.

Thanks also to everyone who sponsored former head coach Scott Naylor and the 17 players on duty in the final plus several other members of the squad who didn’t play on the big day but who had contributed significantly over the course of the season.

Other fans made donations to the club or made purchases via our virtual club shop and a massive thank-you to those people too.

Like all other clubs and business generally we are working hard to try and minimise the negative effects of the global virus and it was encouraging to see the response we got from people who clearly have the future of the club at heart.

The passing of time has done nothing to take away the magic of that big day last October, as enjoyed by supporters and players.

You can hear and read their comments and their memories of the 18-14 promotion-clinching win on Twitter where fans have had their say and where you can listen to the sincere and clearly heart-felt memories of players such as Liam Bent, Ritchie Hawkyard, Zack McComb and Jimmy Beckett.

Cameron Leeming tweeted:

Thanks again to you all. Keep safe, keep well, keep following government guidelines and we all look forward to the day we’ll have more rugby league to enjoy without the ‘virtuality’ bit.

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!
