Diskin names his squad to face Fax

MATT Diskin’s Oldham side will probably be strengthened by the return of three senior players in Saturday’s Betfred Championship clash with Halifax Panthers at Bower Fold (12.45pm kick-off).

His provisional 21-man squad includes Martyn Reilly, Liam Kirk and Ryan Ince, who are all back in contention after injury.

Also in are on-loan youngsters Jack Bibby, from Wigan Warriors, and Jack Croft, from Wakefield Trinity.

Bibby (19), who was playing his first game for more than a year, scored one of Oldham’s four tries in the defeat at London Broncos, and enhanced his growing reputation with a strong display in the front-row, coming off the bench.

Croft (20), a talented young centre, is more experienced than Bibby, having played in eight Super League games and two Challenge Cup ties.

By comparison, Bibby has played all his rugby at Wigan in the Academy side apart from one game in the reserves. He is highly regarded at the Warriors, however, and is said to be on the fringe of a first-team call-up.

Squad: Abram, Bent, Bibby, Brierley, Charnock, Croft, Fletcher, Gregory, Green, Hewitt, Holcroft, Hutchings, Ince, Johnstone, Kirk, Langtree, Nelmes, Owen, Reilly, Roberts, Spencer.

Halifax squad: Rawsthorne, Worthington, Woodhouse-Hall, Harris, Robinson, Moore, Murray, Garside, Barber, Fairbank, Larroyer, Springer, Callott, Kavanagh, Davies, McGrath, McComb, Boubouh, Tibbs, Tangata, Hewitt.

The game will be streamed live on Our League, free to Oldham season-ticket holders and only £4.95 for everyone else if purchased before midnight Friday.

It can still be bought on Saturday, but the price goes up to £10 on game day.

At a time when all clubs are struggling financially with no income through the turnstiles, fans are urged to support the club via Our League and at the same time watch live rugby league from the comfort of their favourite armchair with even a cuppa or a can at half-time!

Saturday’s Bower Fold clash should be a cracker. Don’t miss it, book your Our League “seat” now!

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.
