The Roughyeds


Your chance to support the club AND the NHS

ROUGHYEDS are showing their appreciation of the amazing work done by the NHS and other key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic by launching this special tee-shirt which carries the NHS logo on the front.

Made of durable polyester, the tee-shirt is designed on similar lines to our 2020 home kit, but with some major differences.

Oldham NHS T-Shirt

Not only does it carry the NHS logo on the front, but the white hoops on this year’s home kit have been replaced with the now familiar rainbow colours associated with the NHS.

Also, the normal club crest on the left breast has been replaced with the new blue badge which we launched to show our appreciation for the NHS and other key workers.

The club will donate half of the profits made from sales of the shirt to local NHS charities.

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton:

“We have been wanting to do something like this for a while but it is only now, with lockdown easing, that the factories are able to accept orders, and even now on a reduced scale.”

The cost is £29 for all sizes (from extra small boys to 6XL) and, as stated earlier, 50 per cent of the profit on sales will be donated to local NHS charities.

They are available to pre order now via the website and will be until Sunday, June 28 at midnight, after which we will place the bulk order. Delivery will then take about two to three weeks.

Added Chris:

“We are obviously hoping that Oldham fans will use this opportunity to not only show their support for the club, but to support the incredible job our NHS has done this year through the coronavirus pandemic.

“In addition, we have had another delivery of leisurewear so please check online to see what sizes are available because some went out of stock).

“We also have available, for the first time, player-issue training shorts, which are priced at £28.

“Thanks to everyone for all your support at this difficult time.”

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
