Fans' favourite Liam Bent celebrates his 24th birthday tomorrow (Mon), with a message to the Oldham club and its fans ahead of his move to Widnes Vikings after four years and 93 games with the Roughyeds.
As Supporters' Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019, the tackling-machine forward has been involved in two relegations and a promotion since making his debut in 2017.
“It’s been a hell of a ride and I’ve loved every minute of my time at this great club.
“Thanks to the dedicated fans for their huge support for us each week and to all the staff over the years I’ve been there.
“I’ve learned from the best in terms of fellow players and staff. It means a great deal to me.”
The Roughyeds' 2021 Awards Night — there wasn’t one in 2020 because of Covid — will take place at the Oldham Event Centre, Boundary Park on Saturday, October 23, 7pm for 7.30pm.
Tickets priced £15 including potato pie supper, can be purchased now via the Roughyeds' ticket page.
