Off to the Whitebank Good Friday for my first Experience of the new Home of Rugby in Oldham. I realise it a bit of a hole but i doubt ill mind once the game kicks off.

I was brought up at Watersheddings and still regard Tommy Martyn as my favoruite ever sportsman. Some of my greatest memories are Oldham RLFC games but family stopping going and me taking up cricket got me out of the habbit of going.

Im a bit embarresed as to the amount of Games ive been to since 1997 you can count them with your fingers, but i started following the results again last few season and went to the Good Friday game last season at Spotland now im really looking forward to it.

I realise times have changed but just want to see my Local side go hell for leather against there nearest rivals

Come on you Yeds!!!!!

I hope you have a great time. Yes the ground leaves an awful lot to be desired but it is great to be so close up to the action. Enjoy.

Glad you enjoyed it despite the result. If it helps, they have been playing better than they did today.
