Community Rugby League set to return

Community Rugby League set to return The long-awaited return of Rugby League’s community game is set to be approved this week.

Government sign-off on the RFL’s Return of Community Rugby League Action Plan is imminent. The phased plan outlines the return of non-contact Rugby League – including social formats such as Touch and Try Tag Rugby League.

This phase will be followed, subject to a review led the RFL’s Clinical Advisory Group at the end of August, by a phased return to full contact Rugby League.

Marc Lovering, RFL Director of Participation and Development, says:

“This is a major step forward for the community game and we were able to share the news with community game stakeholders first hand yesterday (Tuesday 4 August) via a series of webinars focused on Community Rugby League.

“When our entire sport was brought to an abrupt halt in March, some parts of the community game were playing and some were yet to begin their seasons. We knew then that resumption would be fluid and complicated.

“We didn’t want to arbitrarily curtail league and cup competitions too quickly, but instead wanted to work closely with leagues, foundations and clubs, and to respond to the situation as it unfolded.

“We have taken a long-term approach to the evolving situation around the public health and the lockdown of sports, with the aim of keeping as many options for as long as possible.

“The impact on the community game has been severe and, sadly, there will be insufficient time to complete competitions once full contact Community Rugby League returns. Our focus now is on supporting clubs with localised friendly fixtures in the Autumn.” A return to full contact Rugby League would involve modifications, including the removal of scrums.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
