It Starts TONIGHT — Roughyeds on Tour

A REMINDER that your chance to mix and mingle socially with our players – and even compete with them at darts — starts TONIGHT with the first heat at Oldham Event Centre, starting at 8.30pm after training. Doors open at 8pm.

Throwing their nine darts TONIGHT will be Brendan Sheridan, Jason Muranka, Will Cooke, David Hewitt, Jack Coventry, Brad Jinks plus the fan who wins the draw from those supporters who are present on the night.

We are told that Martyn Ridyard, our club captain, fancies his chances in one of the later heats. There must be somebody out there who thinks the same ! If so, be there tonight and get your name in the draw.

All are welcome – more the merrier – because the whole idea is to create a situation in which players and supporters alike can meet and spend time together socially in a relaxed environment, yet one that will still have an element of fun and competition.

This is what we told you on May 19:

A forthcoming initiative which Oldham Rugby League Club is calling ‘Roughyeds on Tour’ will enable fans to mix and mingle with players, coaches and backroom staff in local social settings away from game-days.
