IN the run-up to Christmas we have launched a new tee-shirt to commemorate Rugby League’s 125th Anniversary and the part played in that historic event by Oldham’s very own Joseph Platt.
This special memento of Oldham’s leading role in the birth of our favourite game carries an image of the great man, who was added to Rugby League’s Roll of Honour at the end of August, and the club badge that was in use in 1895.
As its first secretary, Joseph Platt administered the Northern Union (later to become the Rugby League) for many years from its birth in 1895, from his office in Queen Street, Oldham where a blue plaque describes him as the ‘father figure’ of Rugby League.
Purchase of this unique tee-shirt is a great way to support Roughyeds in these difficult times; to celebrate Rugby League’s 125-year milestone; to increase awareness of Joseph Platt and the part played by the Oldham club in the sport’s early days.
They are available on pre-order ONLY from now until November 6 via the club’s on-line shop, but any problem and you can ring us on 07904 898 177. Delivery time is expected to be three weeks.
They are available in all sizes from extra small youths (XSY) all the way up to 6XL.
They are priced at £25 from XSY up to extra-large youths (XLY) and then £29 from small adult up to 6XL.
Hurry please to put in your orders because November 6 isn’t far away.
