The next round of the Roughyeds on Tour darts competition takes place this Thursday, 4 August, at 8.45pm at the Hopwood Arms, Slattocks.
Competing in this round will be full-back Owen Restall, prop and vice-captain Luke Nelmes, Welsh centre Calvin Wellington, club captain and goalkicker Martyn Ridyard, one of the favourites to win, on-loan half-back Robbie Butterworth and head coach Stuart Littler.
Fans are not only invited and welcomed to this event to mix and mingle with the players, but one of them, winner of a draw, will also compete at darts with a chance of winning the substantial prize.
Stu and his players hope to see the fans there and to welcome them to this ‘on tour’ event.
Meanwhile, we have been asked to remind people of details of our TWO remaining home games, which are as follows:
Sunday, August 14, 3pm kick-off, v London Skolars
Sunday, September 4, 3pm kick-off, v Hunslet
We also have THREE away games at Midlands Hurricanes this Sunday, August 7 (5.30pm); at Cornwall RLFC, Sunday, August 21 (1pm); and at Swinton Lions. Sunday, August 28 (3pm)
As we will have had only had ten home games this season to provide us with some game-day revenue for the FULL YEAR, a year in which we will have travelled to places like south Birmingham, London, Penryn in the south of Cornwall (overnight stay) and Llanelli, with all the major costs those long trips entail, we urge as many fans as possible please to make a special effort to attend our last two home games which are important to us, apart from anything else, for financial reasons.
Meanwhile, we have also been asked to publicise the following, and in view of our commitment to community matters, we are more than happy to do so.
The Gt Manchester Disabled People’s Panelare reaching out to all disabled people, including former rugby league players and fans, and have asked us to publicise a survey across our social media channels and on our website.
You can visit the survey here: http://gmbigdisabilitysurvey.com
There’s a local connection because the Gt Manchester
Portfolio Lead for Equality is Councillor Amanda Chadderton, leader of Oldham Council.
The survey is only open to August 10 and it is targeted at any disabled person who lives or works in Gt Manchester.
It specifically aims to find out what disabled people think about the current cost-of-living crisis.
