Our League links for Halifax game

THE RFL has provided us with more information for supporters — and we hope and trust there will be many — who wish to watch Matt Diskin’s new-look squad take on Simon Grix’s Halifax Panthers in a pre-season warm-up clash at Bower Fold on Saturday, March 13, kick-off 4pm.

It’s a behind-closed-doors game, obviously, but the game will be streamed live on Our League, free for our season-ticket holders and a nominal £4.95 for other fans who take advantage of the Early Bird offer.

Payment on the day will be £10, but book early and you get it for more than half the price!

You can do it now. The package is live on the Oldham club’s social media platforms; on the OurLeague app and website; and also here: rugby-league.com/livestream

FAQs can be found here: roughyeds.co.uk/streaming-faqs

A week later, on Saturday, March 20, Barrow Raiders will be at Bower Fold in the first round of the Betfred Challenge Cup (12.45pm kick-off) and this game will also be streamed live on Our League and again it will be free to our season-ticket holders.

A massive thank-you to all season-ticket holders who purchased up front to help us in difficult times and despite Covid-caused uncertainty.

We have since learned that we will have only 11 home league games so we are redeeming payment of the two ‘lost’ home matches by offering this free facility for the two streamed games against Halifax on March 13 and Barrow Raiders in the Challenge Cup on March 20.

Our season-ticket holders will also get additional match content, details to follow in due course.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
