The Roughyeds


More good news — this time relative to Purpose

As we gear up and look forward to 2022 with many different facets to the club, our sponsorship portfolio is growing steadily, much to the delight of the two men charged with the responsibility of keeping their hands firmly on the tiller, Chris Hamilton and John Roddy.

We have already announced that:

  • CDX Security of Warrington, a family-run ‘national’ in which John, our new vice-chairman, is managing director, has agreed a new deal as the Roughyeds' main sponsors for the 2022 Betfred League One campaign.

  • We have a new and ‘exciting’ commercial partnership with Sheffield-based nutritional suppliers Santini 7.

  • Barton Cleaning Services of Warrington, another of John Roddy’s companies, is putting its commercial weight behind YEDS, our new Supporters' Group.

  • We have a new kit and leisure-wear deal with bespoke sportswear manufacturers Ellgren of Dewsbury.

We are now delighted to announce that a company with a specific ‘purpose’ — Purpose Business and Marketing Ltd — have joined CDX in maintaining their already well-established backing for and belief in what we are trying to do at Oldham RLFC.

‘Purpose’ are back on board for a FOURTH year and Oldham RLFC chairman Chris Hamilton said:

“We are delighted to announce the renewal of the ongoing deal with Purpose Business and Marketing.

“Julie Collins and her staff have really embraced themselves into the club and they work with us on many different aspects. Long may it continue !”

Julie, a leading figure on the club’s board of management, is managing director of ‘Purpose’. Her head of marketing in the company is Laura White, who has more than 20 years' experience, while creative lead Florence Gibbs Price, the second youngest member of the team, has an enthusiasm for all things creative and digital.

The most recent and youngest addition to the team is marketing assistant Chloe Wolstenholme. She completed work experience under the direction of Chris Hamilton and will help with lots of initiatives.

Julie, who has the ability and authority to earn the respect of those working for her, with her or around her, said:

“We are delighted to confirm our sponsorship of the club for the fourth year.

“We are a small local business that helps businesses to improve their marketing, and grow, and we absolutely love Rugby League and ORLFC.

“We definitely hold the view that this fabulous sport needs and is fully deserving of good support and much wider coverage.

“We do as much as we can to support the club in addition to being a sponsor. We help with the production of match-day programmes, be they digital or printed, and with local advertising and we also contribute to the many off-the-field efforts that take place over the course of a season.

“We look forward to a successful 2022 and we wish Chris, John, Stuart and the whole club all the very best of wishes for the new season.”

We will be announcing more sponsorships and commercial partnerships in the build-up to the new season, which starts with a friendly against Wakefield Trinity at the Vestacare Stadium on Saturday, January 22 (6pm).

We’re at home again on the following weekend when we play either Lock Lane of Castleford or current NWC champions Thatto Heath of St Helens in the second round of the Challenge Cup.

The amateur clubs clash in two weeks' time as one of 14 first-round ties.
