Neil Roden has given Oldham RLFC great service over the past 12 years and continues to do so in his role of U/20's coach. He has been with us through some very difficult times but has never shirked in his sense of responsibility and commitment to the cause, a rare quality in professional sport today. I think he has been badly let down this season by a failure of fans to support his coaching efforts, yet he has handled the situation admirably as his young 'charges' continue to develop their skills under his direction. Now, with his Testimonial Dinner booked for Saturday, 9th August, this is an ideal opportunity for fans, both past and present, to show their appreciation for all his endeavours and I would urge anyone who is able to attend or support Neil's evening to do so. He certainly deserves a successful and fruitful occasion.
Good luck, Neil.
