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.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
