Senior goes back to the Giants

AFTER only one game on loan to Oldham, highly-rated young centre or wing Louis Senior has gone back to his Super League parent club Huddersfield Giants where several players have tested positive for Covid.

Senior celebrated his 21st birthday, and scored a try, on the day he played his one and only game for Roughyeds against Widnes Vikings a fortnight ago.

Oldham were keen to extend his initial two-week loan period, but the Giants have recalled him in the latest of several Covid-caused setbacks to hit Matt Diskin’s men.

Said chairman Chris Hamilton:

“Covid continues to cause disruption. We recently lost Matt Diskin for ten days when he had to isolate and earlier in the season we had players missing for similar reasons.

“We have now lost Louis Senior back to the Giants because some of their players have tested positive.

Senior’s place in Diskin’s provisional 21-man squad for the Bower Fold clash with Sheffield Eagles on Saturday (3pm) goes to local boy Joe Hartley, the only change.

That doesn’t necessarily mean Hartley will play because Diskin has options within his squad even though Jack Spencer, Ben Heaton, Kyran Johnson and James Barran are still not ready to return after long periods on the injury list.

Squad: D Abram, J Abram, Bent, Bridge, Brierley, Charnock, Dupree, Fletcher, Gregory, Hartley, Hewitt, Hutchings, Ince, Joy, Kirk, Langtree, Nelmes, Owen, Pick, Reilly, Roberts.

A hugely significant change might be the recall of long-serving front-row man Phil Joy, who’s in line to play his first competitive game of the season after damaging a hamstring at Featherstone in a pre-season friendly.

For the past two or three weeks, the biggest forward at the club has been training normally with the squad and Saturday might be the day when he is thrown back into the fray.

Sheffield, who have also suffered significant injuries, have bolstered their pack with the signing of former Bradford Bulls and Newcastle Thunder forward Evan Hodgson (22), who goes straight into the early squad for the game at Bower Fold.

It has been switched from Sunday to Saturday (3pm) to avoid a clash with England v Croatia in the European football Championship.

It won’t be covered by Our League, so the only way fans can watch the game is to buy a ticket online and produce it at the turnstiles.

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.
