  1. Halifax in the Cup

    Very well done to the lads last night. They had commitment, effort, enthusiasm in bucket loads and showed just how hard they all work to attain outstanding fitness levels. All involved deserve the draw against a Super League side and will make the most of that experience. Meanwhile, the concentration must be on the next 4 league games, taking 1 game at a time. Already looking forward to Sunday and our visit to the Crusaders - COME ON OLDHAM!
  2. York City Knights

    Really looking forward to this one - it should be a cracker. Hoping to see a decent crowd, providing a good atmosphere on what should be a decent day too. Come on Oldham!
  3. 2018 Squad and signings.

    Plenty to look forward to in 2018, me thinks!
  4. Sunday - Whitebank

    Thanks, Dave. Great to see the game again, as Sunday went in a flash, such was the speed of play. The 2018 season is looking very promising after the impressive pre-season matches on Rochdale's beach, the Barrow mud and the artificial pitch at 'home'. Can't wait for the start up at Whitehaven - bring it on!
  5. Sunday - Whitebank

    The lads must be absolutely buzzing to be playing their first game at home on Sunday, especially on the surface they have trained hard on since November. As a 'new' side and after winning the Law Cup and clearly giving their all up at Barrow last Sunday they will relish everything about playing at home and hoping for a decent crowd to support them - they deserve it. I for one, am really looking forward to the game and being back in Oldham.
  6. Barrow

    A final score 16-6 and plenty of compliments given to our team as already said. Full credit to both sides for such a big effort in such bad conditions - hot food and drinks must have been very welcome by all. Hope all who travelled have a safe journey home.
  7. Barrow

    Going well. Half-time 10 - 6 to Barrow and Oldham had a try disallowed earlier. Try to Phil Joy - well done Phil on his return from injury. Conditions sound awful so certainly a big test for both sides.
  8. 2018 Squad and signings.

    Kenny - another pleasing re-signing helping to keep the happy 'band' together, so more consistency. The squad is coming together nicely now and once the new lads are on board, they'll soon be part of a the set-up. Good stuff.
  9. New coach

    Think you may have missed my point, to be honest. I don't deny that there are facts as stated quite publicly, but nobody knows whether or not some of the issues remain unresolved, or otherwise. So, opening up the debate, without being aware of the current situation and of any discussions that may have gone on 'behind the scenes', leads to speculation. Speculation then becomes 'fact' and some of that will be based on rumour and incorrect interpretation, consequently clouding the issues. So, I am merely suggesting that it would be wise to wait and see what announcements crop up in the weeks ahead, rather that jeopardising any matters that are ongoing. That's all!
  10. New coach

    Key word in all this: ALLEGED. All this speculation doesn't help anyone and only leads to more of the same, so it would be better to wait and see and stick to the positive issues of the signings. Oh, I am boring, sorry!!
  11. new paper

    The Oldham Times is nothing to do with the Manchester Evening News - it is a new paper from a regional publisher, Newsquest and will be based in Bolton, edited by the Bolton News editor. Apparently, it is 56 pages and will sell for 80p.
  12. Match today!

    An exciting match is in prospect today as we take on Toulouse and it's crucial that the lads get all the support we can muster at such a crucial time. The club has done their bit by reducing admission charges and under 16's are free so don't uhm and ahh, get along to Bower Fold, pick up some pals and get your shouting voices in gear!! ALLEZ ROUGHYEDS, ALLEZ
  13. Oldham Evening Chronicle

    Some sad news for many tonight - the Oldham Evening Chronicle has gone into administration and today's edition is the final one. This is bad news for local sports clubs like ours as a lot of older fans still rely on the Chronicle for their news of club developments and team news, also look forward to match reports. There will be a need now to ensure that news is communicated to these fans in other ways so perhaps many of us can bear this in mind and pass on information to those who will no longer be getting their rugby 'fix' that way. I'm not surprised at the news, as circulation has really dwindled, but am certainly saddened by it. Nothing quite like a printed match report after a victory!
  14. Bradford at home

    One of the stewards did say yesterday, that it was due to the shortage of stewards. However, the number of stewards is based on a specific ratio to fan numbers, but that is surely based on larger groups of people than we ever get at our matches. With only a few hundred at matches, common sense says that it would be preferable to spread the numbers out over 4 sides of the ground rather than 3. That would surely eliminate any tension between rival fans and give freedom to change ends to the advantage of the attacking team.
  15. Bradford at home

    Thought it was time for a new topic - the next 'job in hand'. It's time to get behind the lads again on Sunday and take our part in getting back to winning ways. For that, we all have to be positive and believe that, WE CAN DO IT!! So, let's get over to Bower Fold on Sunday and give all the support we can muster. COME ON YOU YEDS!!
