The Roughyeds


New Venture With Online Programme

WE are going online with match-day programmes this season, starting now with the first issue for tomorrow’s first-round Betfred Challenge Cup tie against Barrow Raiders at Bower Fold.

For those fans watching the game on Our League — free to season-ticket holders, £4.95 for everyone else if purchased before midnight, £10 afterwards — please remember the tie kicks off at 12.45pm.

Season-ticket holders do NOT require a new activation code. The one used for the Halifax game last week will allow automatic access to tomorrow’s game.

We hope you all enjoy the new online programme, which can be accessed FREE for season-ticket holders.

For everyone else we are asking £15 for FULL-SEASON access and there will be a programme online before every home game in cup or league.

Season-ticket holders go to the Roughyeds Store and select a subscription to the programme. They enter a code and the subscription becomes free of charge.

Non season-ticket holders, without the code, do the same thing but have to pay the £15.

Once people have purchased, or in the case of season-ticket holders have attained a free code to the subscription, they can then see the programme products in the store. They are automatically elevated to a level that permits access on purchase.

People don’t have to go through a checkout procedure every week, the Digital Matchday Programme product simply says “Download” and is available to logged-in users.

The code has been emailed to season-ticket holders and the programme released on line. We can now accept a £15 subscription FOR THE FULL SEASON.

All subscribers will then receive an email to remind them when a new programme is available. All they need to do then is follow the link in the email and hit download.

More and more clubs are going online with programmes, for obvious reasons, and we believe you will find ours a good read and very informative for all fans.

Last year’s ‘normal’ or printed copy went on sale at £3, so by making the online version, which we believe to be even better, free for season-ticket holders and only £15 for a full season for everyone else, we firmly believe we are offering a good deal too.

Like every other source of income, it will also be important for the health and financial well-being of the club in these unusual times when we play behind closed doors.

Have a good read — and enjoy !

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.
