The Roughyeds


Upbeat messages from Reilly and Dupree

AS the start of pre-season training for 2021 draws nearer, new signings Tyler Dupree and Martyn Reilly have used our social media platforms to send ‘getting to know you’ messages to Roughyeds fans.

The two front-row forwards, Dupree from Leeds Rhinos, Reilly from Dewsbury Rams, say how much they are looking forward to their first training session as Oldham players and also to the first time they will be playing for Roughyeds, hopefully with Oldham supporters inside the ground.

Said Reilly:

“This is a quick message just to say how much I’m looking forward to starting pre-season training as an Oldham player. We’ve been away from the game for a long time and I can’t wait to get back.

“Disco and Chris have really made the best of a bad situation and have built a very strong side for 2021. As a player, that’s something I’m really looking forward to being a part of.

“You guys (Oldham fans) have a lot to be excited about. As I say, Disco and Chris have made some good signings and have kept hold also of a lot of good players from last year.

“I’m looking forward to meeting all you guys — hopefully at the first game if restrictions are lifted — and getting to know you. Here’s to a good 2021.”

Dupree, also talking to Roughyeds fans on the club’s social media sites, expressed similar upbeat thoughts about his move to Oldham, and added:

“I can’t wait to get my first training session as an Oldham player under my belt. Hopefully, we’ll see you at the first game. Stay safe — and stay well.”

Oldham currently have a playing roster of 27 contracted players who will be under the command of head coach Matt Diskin and his two assistants in fellow Yorkshiremen Brendan Sheridan and Jode Sheriffe, who will double-up as a player.

Reilly and Dupree are among 12 new signings, the others being Luke Nelmes, Liam Kirk and Shaun Pick (all forwards like Reilly and Dupree) and backs Tommy Brierley, Ben Holcroft, Ryan Ince, Ben Heaton, Max Roberts, Callum Green and James Barran, a local lad who lives in Lees and was a Wigan Warriors product, like Holcroft, Roberts and initially Green, although he was latterly with Warrington Wolves.

To make the squad of 27 they join 15 players who were here previously and need no introduction to Oldham fans, namely Jack Spencer, Phil Joy, Jode Sheriffe, Matty Wilkinson, Gareth Owen, Danny Langtree, Matthew Fletcher, Ed Smith, Liam Bent (all forwards) and Dan Abram, Kyle Johnson, Cameron Leeming, John Hutchings, Lewis Charnock and Dave Hewitt (all backs).

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
