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.
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.
“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.”
