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 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.
