Chris, Shez on BBC TV regional news tonight

OLDHAM chairman Chris Hamilton and the club’s assistant coach Brendan ‘Shez’ Sheridan will be interviewed on tonight’s (Thursday) edition of ‘Look North-West’, the BBC’s regional news programme which starts at 6.30pm.

It is thought that Chris will be talking in general terms about the club, Covid-19 and issues arising from the unprecedented events of the past few months.

Brendan, as has been well documented during this period, was in a coma in the intensive care unit at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield where NHS staff saved his life after he was severely struck down by the virus.

He will be asked about issues arising from that and how he is progressing in terms of his mental health.

So fans, tune in to BBC 1 at 6.30pm tonight to listen to your club chairman and your assistant coach.


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.
