#3205049 Map of Rumoured Grounds

Posted by SINGE on 01 October 2015 - 09:27 PM

Yep me too. A golden opportunity with a maximum audience.


Here it is

Oldham Roughyeds@Roughyeds 27m27 minutes ago

Oldham RLFC chairman Chris Hamilton will be a studio guest of Oldham Community Radio (99.7FM) between 10am and noon tomorrow morning

Mossley would be the worst choice access wise after leigh, a car would be only viable way to get there Sundays, one bus an hour from Ashton is the only other option. The train is a no go unless you fancy a steep one mile hike from bottom to top Mossley.


It would be interesting how people travel to Whitebank  now.

Suspect there are not a majority following your route.

It's immaterial if the standards are not met I guess.

But there are buses every 2o mins with some as few as 25 mins journey

No, I'm Dan Overlay.

#3193436 We have won NOTHING yet!

Posted by SINGE on 14 September 2015 - 05:20 PM

Even the title of this thread shows some Oldam supporters know that your team could end up with nothing this year. I've seen so many other teams in sport come so close but fail at the final hurdle. Cougars are now back to full strength and playing powerful fast rugby. Sorry to say for Oldham fans, that Cougars will finish you off Sunday. Then it will be a tall order for you to pick yourselves up and beat North Wales and Swinton in consecutive weeks.

ORLFC has come close and failed at the final hurdle far too often.

This one would hurt the most though. By a long way.

But thre ios someting in this side. And they give oyu a confidence about them. They have passed nearly all the tests of them with flying colours.

#3190018 Kingstone Press: Awards 3 nominations for Roughyeds

Posted by SINGE on 09 September 2015 - 10:27 AM

It would be truly tragic if Scott didn't get it after all he's done. Fingers crossed for him.

For what he has done on the budget he has, he deserves it by a landslide.


And less than 2 weeks shy of only his 3rd year at the club.

Well deserved nominations for Scott Naylor in League 1 Coach of the Year, and Lewis Palfrey & George Tyson in League 1 Player of the Year



#3182303 Worst case scenario in next two games

Posted by SINGE on 25 August 2015 - 11:24 AM

Typical Oldhamer. Working out how we will lose rather than how we will win. This kind of talk is pointless, infectious and finds its way to the players.

Be positive. We are the best team in the League. Form says so. The table says so. Independent commentators say so.

And we've just got to win two home games against teams we've already beaten this season.

I'm less concerned about the next two or three games than I am about where we'll play if we do go up.

You can't blame anyone for doing this after our history!!

We've been certs before, only to fall at the last hurdle.  

Definately sure the players are not affected. Look at all the off the field stuff, whilst they have been on their magnificent unbreaten run!!

#3181276 Get to the game

Posted by SINGE on 23 August 2015 - 03:49 PM

Excellent comeback
28-12 win. Looks like greater Stamina must have been a factor with 3 converted tries in last 11 mins.

#3178538 Boundary Park

Posted by SINGE on 18 August 2015 - 11:23 AM

Can we have a interest free loan then too lol

I think the term you mean is gift.....!!!

#3178126 Boundary Park

Posted by SINGE on 17 August 2015 - 03:01 PM

Picture the scene...ORLFC win promotion and OMBC and the RFL come through with the idea of Ground share at Boundary park is worth investing in...Further consolidation and sucess follows. While Latics continue to falter and decline...Its not unimaginable that a swathe of cheesed off disillusioned Latics Fans may just "take a Peep" at a young vibrant and wonderfully entertaining group of rugby players as an alternative to the overpaid underperforming "professional" sportsmen wearing the Tangerine and blue! (I know it was deliberate...I watched the Latics in the David Shaw, Alan Groves, Jim Fryatt era! ps they won the ford sporting league one season,for most goals scored and it was Brilliant THEN!).


That might become a problem EH?

Actually, the general consensus among many LAtics fans is that the team has stabilised for the first time, and some good additions have hlped. Early days, and a new manager, mean is cautious.


Imagine both sides on the up.


Adding to what you, Andy and Manc RL have said, it would be great for the town if both clubs were to get nearer former glories. 

#3165849 Great win - great coaches - great spirit

Posted by SINGE on 27 July 2015 - 09:30 AM

Really big win, in a big game. Could be crucial. Mentally, very important win. Tees it up nicely for Keighley.

#3149548 Limehurst Lions

Posted by SINGE on 29 June 2015 - 11:44 AM

Does that mean Lions have left without talking to Oldham rlfc first? Would love to see the Lions continue at Whitebank but whatever happens, wish them well for the future.



We have tried to make contact but never get a reply we had a meeting in Feb still waiting feedback how long do we wait? We don't leave the ground until 12th July unless we get kicked off that is!!

Do you mind if I ask a question Limehirst Linos fan

Approximately how many times and how have you tried to contact CH since Feb?

Not doubting you, but just more ino before judging.


Obviosuly there is a big difference  between a couple of emails in those 4 months,that might have been deleted due to spam settings and never beenr recieved,  and a phone call every couple of weeks chasing.

#3145928 Social Media

Posted by SINGE on 23 June 2015 - 02:24 PM

The Match day updates on Social Media are done by supporter Jenny Travis, she also put the midweek news updates on when they are provided to her. The club have provided Jenny with a phone. I think most of the stories are done by Roger. You'll notice what's on the website is also on both social media feeds and the OEC.



Bedford, they are all being updated, the rlfc have stated Oldhams twitter feed is excellent. I agree it is save on match days for me that is still an issue.

Got to agree, well done Jenny. Great to rely on Twitter feeds for the score and details. Thumbs up from this exile.

Difficult to update when there is little news to update on.

#3114887 Meeting with CH

Posted by SINGE on 01 May 2015 - 01:24 PM

I'm not attacking the people who want to do something, what I'm saying,if you read my post properly, that Hamilton has singing the same tune for the last 5 yrs, and nothing on the club statement today makes me think things will improve quickly. Nobody has posted on here what was discussed yesterday, and what Hamilton is going to do. Many people before you have been down this road with him, and nothing was changed for the better. I just feel your wasting your time, getting your hopes built up,and it will all come to nothing, but hey, that's your prerogative. I'm just wondering how many of you who want change, go to home games, as we had a meeting with a clown in the King George last season, who wanted to change things,but had never set foot in the Whitebank.

Has he told you what is going on behind the scenes,what changes and improvements are being made to the ground,and what is he doing about the whole match day experience along with Merchandise.

It seems to me allroughyeds that you have written this off before it has had chance to even get off the ground, which is a shame. I hope you are not wanting it to be the case, so you can say I told you so.


But let's take your concerns at face value, and you want to ensure hopes are not raised, you have said that you have tried on many occaisions and I am sure others have,

But this time it is different. Maybe the stars are aligned differently, maybe he has hit rock bottom, who knows, but it is clear it is being handled very differently from CH from every other occcaison.


I think everyone is aware it might fail. But that is why things are being handled delicately.


I don't know you from Adam, but on here you come acros as very bombastic, as if you know best, and the only one that knows anything. I am sure that is not the case in real life. I am sure this is not how you want to be portrayed,but it is a consequence of your style so far.


It could just be different this time.  If it's no different, they tried and got further than most. Just try not to gloat too much if it doen't work out.

I tihnk your underlying points are valid, and maybe "Have you asked xx ppint ", 2could oyu ask xx pint " approach would be refreshing to see.

#3114830 Meeting with CH - Update

Posted by SINGE on 01 May 2015 - 12:17 PM

Really pleased the meeting went well, and plaudits for the way you have handled it.

Pluadits to CH too, of course.

Manybe this will be seen in the future as a turning point and the catalyst for success.
