  1. Morris kinda did nowt tbh, had a spell for 10mins or so and then never returned. Don't know what was up with him. Benty is a machine, awesome. Does the graft,doesn't stand out particularly going forward but by God does that lad deserve a place in this team. Surely in for a shout for player of the season already,just for the sheer amount of effort and pride he puts into the shirt. Outstanding young man, glad he is on our side!
  2. There is a car park at the ground mate, it's not massive but usually if you get there around 2ish you will get on but being Good Friday it might be busy, if you arrive early the club at the ground is open for refreshments from 12 .Apart from that it's on street parking around the area, if you can't get on the car park the stewards will likely know where is ok to park,just watch out for blocking drives, double yellows etc-the locals won't be too chuffed if you block um in
  3. He has come home to Oldham on a 18 mnth contract. Needless to say us Oldham fans are delighted,although slightly disappointed he never got a shot at Hull.
  4. He is home! Signed on an 18 month contract. Absolutely brilliant news. Welcome home Danny!
  5. First half was poor really, Widnes are a quality side that punished errors and were clinical. Second half Oldham played so much better.Pride,passion and a great attitude. Ultimately, beaten by a better side. Im not bothered in the slightest about the margin of defeat etc. Next week at Newcastle is far more important than the CC or the 1895 cup. Well played Widnes, credit to Oldham for not throwing in the towel. Enjoyable day out at Bower Fold.
  6. Excellent news Geoff! Brilliant that the trust are behind this initiative. Really pleased that this junior section has been born from the meetings. Congratulations to all involved and let's hope that the future generations of Oldham fans will embrace this new concept and sign up in droves. Truly great news, as they say in the song "I believe the children are our future", this is a huge step in securing a new generation of Roughyeds.
  7. https://www.saddleworthrangers.co.uk/ - official club site. Bit of info here and a contact page,maybe someone from Rangers could fill in the blanks for a wiki page?
  8. Oh well, was looking forward to this one too. Can't beat the weather though, unfortunately even with a 4g pitch (contrary to popular belief) they are not "all weather"-technical stuff to do with the little rubber pellets and so on. Can't imagine the surroundings would have been too great either, never mind it's "Summer Rugby" they keep telling us ?
  9. Spoke briefly to Roger Halstead last week at Swinton asking why we were playing Newcastle in a friendly, his answer was that "Nobby wants a look at them", read into that what you will. After a very good preseason so far against Championship opposition it will be interesting to see what happens on Sunday (weather permitting), very strong looking Newcastle squad although missing Gill and Finn should provide a good test for our lads. To be honest apart from possibly a bit of psychological advantage, its just another run out before the season starts in earnest in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to what promises to be another good match although i wont be reading too much into the result. A win would be great but more importantly at this stage its another 80 mins for the lads to gel and get used to each other and try some systems out in a match environment. A good performance and no injuries heading into the opening league game in a couple of weeks will do. Hope we get a decent crowd in, plenty have been asking for reduced admission and the club have responded by cutting the price for this game. Up the Yeds!
  10. Fear not my friends, Mr H put in an appearance at Swinton last Sunday! He had a little chat with our travelling fans and I'm happy to report he looked very well and was in good spirits. He said he is doing OK and is looking forward to attending more games this season although taking it step by step. Genuinely, I was very pleased to see him as I think every fan who saw him was too. P. S. Seems like Lalar finds it hilarious that people are glad that a human being is well after major surgery. Just shows the mentality of the troll ?
  11. Clearly Nobby doesn't think so making him skipper again this season.
  12. Decent game today. First half superb, second half Swinton bossed it. Overall a very encouraging performance, couple of our lads suffering with illness today but put a great shift in. Windy conditions for the kickers and those missed points cost us at least a draw. Ref was indifferent for both sides and I don't think I have seen linesman on the field of play as much as today. Seemed like they were almost trying to be "second" refs. Still believe this is the best Oldham squad we have seen for a few seasons, looks very promising for the league campaign. Swinton definately a cut above Hornets on that performance and should do ok. Always a good day at Sale and friendly fans and staff too. Wish them all the best for the season.
  13. Outstanding from Benty and Calland, work from all the forwards incredible.Backs impressive also. Brilliant stats from the Law Cup both in attack and defence, Bodes well for the season. Thanks Brooksy
  14. £14 on the door for adults i have been reliably informed by a Swinton pal. Hopefully another good match and performance, looking forward to it.
  15. Decent turn out from Hornets fans, not much to shout about though. No offence but off that showing it will be a long season for you guys in the Championship. Expected a bit more tbh, didn't seem too much cohesion or even spirit in your side today. Oh well, hope you can improve and stay in the Championship and we can join you. Good luck for the season.
