The Roughyeds


A chance to listen to a man who knows

THOSE whose great idea it was to introduce and promote the Family Tuesday Club – and one immediately thinks of Joe Warburton and Ray Hicks — will be gratified to see that numbers are growing since the venue was switched from Heyside Cricket Club to the Fox and Pine public house in the town centre.

This venue, close as it is to the bus terminal in the heart of Oldham, is far more accessible to most people and that is reflected in the numbers attending this weekly drop-in for anyone wishing to meet like-minded people, to socialise in an Oldham Rugby setting and to have a natter about anything and everything associated with rugby league in this town of ours down the decades.

Admission to the event is FREE. You simply turn up about 12.15pm to 12.30, buy your tipple, take a seat and wait for events to unfold. For the next couple of hours or so you will be whisked away to a land called Watersheddings where it has all happened for more than a century of sporting achievement.

I mention this right now because the event this coming Tuesday, , May 28, features something special — a chance to listen to the yarns and memoirs of a man who knows first hand what it was like to be an Oldham Rugby supporter years ago. I refer to John Chadwick, on whom the spotlight will fall on Tuesday, writes ROGER HALSTEAD. John will be coming here from his home on the Fylde coast, a round trip of 100 miles, and Ray Hicks wants as much publicity as possible beforehand for obvious reasons.

A former secretary and chairman of the club — and a fan since he was a boy — John knows what he’s talking about. It isn’t every day you get a chance to hear John Chadwick talking rugby.

Don’t miss this one!
