Allocation for Oldham fans all sold out

FEATHERSTONE Rovers have informed us that the 100 tickets allocated to Oldham fans for tonight’s Betfred Championship game at the Millenium Stadium (formerly Post Office Road) have all been sold.

They went on sale last night, with the approval of the RFL and of Wakefield Council, on a first come. first served basis.

Rovers have now told us the allocation has all gone.

As far as the match is concerned (8pm kick-off) we are regarded by Rovers, according to their website, as a ‘potential banana skin’.

Said Rovers captain James Lockwood, who will be making his 250th career appearance:

“This is no different to any other game. In the Championship any team can win any time, so we’ll be preparing for every game this season in exactly the same way.”

Coach James Webster said:

“Oldham have shown they can produce good performances with wins over Halifax and Swinton.”

He and his new football manager, Ian Hardman, will be without several injured players, as will Oldham.

Injured and out of the Rovers line-up are Frank Halton, James Harrison, Joe Summers, Jake Sweeting, Ben Blackmore, Kris Welham, Brett Ferres and Dale Ferguson.

Webster has named a 19-man squad: Hall, Hardcastle, Gale, Holmes, Chisholm, Kopczak, Brown, Day, Lockwood, Jones, Davies, Bussey, Minns, Cooper, Field, Parata, McConnell. Spence, Moors.

Rovers will have about 1,500 fans there; Oldham 100.

Players have got used to playing behind closed doors, so it will be ‘different’ to have fans there — and ‘different’ again because fans are being discouraged from verbally supporting their teams in order to reduce the risk of spreading Covid.

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.
