Smith needs knee surgery

ED Smith is a second Oldham forward waiting for knee surgery.

“He’s in need of relatively minor surgery, but the Covid-19 virus is holding things up,”

said Roughyeds coach Matt Diskin.

Prop Jode Sheriffe is also on a long waiting list, as he has been since damaging a knee during pre-season training last autumn.

“It would have been done and dusted by now had it not been for the current situation,”

added Matt, who said every other member of the squad was fit and well and doing the best they could individually at home to keep fully fit.

He added:

Beyond that there isn’t anything else to report because we don’t know yet what’s going to be happening going forward. We are waiting for guidance from above.”

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.
