Look at these prices

OLDHAM fans have up to and including tomorrow (Friday) to take advantage of the discounts on Early-Bird season tickets.

Bearing in mind the sort of experienced squad we’ve assembled for 2021 and in the knowledge that clubs of the status and standing of Featherstone Rovers, Widnes Vikings, Halifax Panthers, Toulouse Olympique and London Broncos will be visiting us, we believe that by holding the prices at this year’s levels and effectively offering three free games, our season tickets represent excellent value for money.

Covid throws another consideration into the mix, but if we have to play behind closed doors to start with, our season-ticket holders will get FREE access to online coverage of both home and away games, whereas other fans will be required to go down the pay-to-view route to see our new-look team in action.

We’ve still got old favourites like Phil Joy, Gareth Owen, Jack Spencer, Matty Wilkinson, Danny Langtree and Liam Bent, but we’ve got former fans' favourites coming ‘home’, like prop Luke Nelmes and centre Ben Heaton as well as ten more new faces, including the vastly experienced winger Ryan Ince and forwards Martyn Reilly, Liam Kirk and Shaun Pick.

Add a few new younger players, like prop Tyler Dupree from Leeds Rhinos and up-and-coming backs such as Tommy Brierley, Ben Holcroft, Max Roberts, Callum Green and local lad James Barran and its little wonder head coach Matt Diskin has expressed the view that he is much more confident than he was this time last year.

Back to the season tickets and you’ve only to divide each category price by 13 — the number of home games — to see the real value of what you are buying.

Paying £190 up front, an adult can buy a seat for the mathematical equivalent of £14.50 a game. It’s down to £13 a game for over-65s and, amazingly, only £3 a game for under-16s.

If you are happy to stand it’s even better — it works out at £13 a game for an adult, £11.50 for an over-65 and, wait for it, a give-away £1.50 for under-16s.

By way of comparison, here are match-day prices:

Standing: adults £17, over-65s £15; under-16s £2; Sitting: adults £19, over-65s £17; under-16s £5.

The club’s office is currently closed because of the pandemic but you can buy season tickets during office hours today (Thursday) and tomorrow (Fri) by ringing 07904 898177 or you can purchase online, via the club website, up until 11.59pm tomorrow (Friday).

“Our fans have been brilliant so far in supporting our initiatives during the lockdowns but the sale of season tickets, always hugely significant towards the club’s finances, is all the more crucial this year,” said club chairman Chris Hamilton. “Any help fans can give us on this will 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.
