Message to 2020 Season Ticket Holders

WHILE important preparations continue for a return to Betfred Championship rugby in 2021, with more signings to come, we need to reach closure on issues relative to this ill-fated and curtailed 2020 campaign.

One of them concerns this year’s season tickets and the options we offered to fans who bought season tickets for a campaign that was put on hold after only a few games and has since been declared null and void and confined to the record books.

Some time ago we either emailed or wrote to our season-ticket holders, offering various options.

Most have replied — a big thank-you for that — but a small number have still to respond and we need that information as quickly as possible now please to allow us to move forward in these critical times of unprecedented uncertainty and financial lockdown.

Anyone who has still to tell us which option they prefer is urged to get in touch as soon as possible, either by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk or by letter to: Oldham RLFC, Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Rd, Limehurst Village, OLDHAM,

OL8 3JH, confirming in writing which option they wish to take.

We really do need to get this information NOW please, so we are operating a deadline of 5pm next Friday, October 2 when we will assume that anyone who has not responded by then is happy to help the club, as many have already done, by taking up the option to donate.

To go down the deadline route is not something we would choose to do, but it is perhaps one way of speeding up the process and drawing it to a close.

Said chairman Chris Hamilton:

“The club is really grateful to those season-ticket holders who have already replied and given us their preferred option. We are very pleased at the way this has gone and a big thank-you to all who have replied, but we really do need to bring this to a close now.

“The co-operation of those who have still to respond would be hugely appreciated.”

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.
