    Fund raising

    Done. Everything helps the cause - especially towards helping us stay in Championship, but on a sound footing. Looking at the way that some clubs are spending for 2019, Hemel gone, Leigh's situation and now Keighley struggling big time - the number of C/L1 clubs remaining at the season's start could be even smaller!

    2019 squad.

    Well done Hornets for resigning Elliott Jenkins. He made a good debut with 2 tries and many assists with Wales’ World Cup qualification. From what I’ve seen he looks a very skilful and exciting young prospect. The new team is shaping up nicely. Coaches: Carl Foster; assistant Anthony Stewart Backs: Dec Kay, Ben Morris, Seta Tala, Paddy Flynn, Danny Price, Shaun Ainscough, Elliott Jenkins Hooker/utility: Ben Moores, Stu Howarth, Dec Gregory Forwards: Lee Mitchell, Joe Ryan, Carl Forster, Mike Weldon, Ryan Millington, Jack Cottington

    Dec Gregory stays with us for 2019...quite a live wire, it seems.

    Great signing in the prolific try scoring ex Widnes wingman Paddy Flynn. Great win for the England lads today.

    Hope we can look forward to the announcement of a good and exciting half-back partnership, pivotal with Moores & Howarth (presumably). A kicker as good as Crooks will be difficult.

    Jo Tiara has signed - - for Batley!

    2019 squad.

    A very interesting coaching/playing set-up, especially that each of the three has played at Hornets during their careers. Our squad will have an abundance of experience to call upon. Hopefully, we shall have some good news in that area soon.

    2019 squad.

    According to the ‘’Trello” link above, Anthony Stewart is our new assistant coach, with no news of Crooks!

    2019 squad.

    A former hero rumoured to be rejoining - from a neighbour's link! His experience could be invaluable. https://trello.com/b/rVp9DsQ4/oldham-rlfc-2019

    2019 squad.

    Crucial to our ‘19 season will be the half backs and of course very reliable goal and tactical kicker/s. Moore’s is good start to those pivotal positions, but experienced players who can shape games are in short supply and not cheap! Some pace merchants too. My feeling is that Carl Foster will be surrounding himself with a big, mobile and formidable pack. Look forward to developments.

    Swinton v Worky.

    A crucial and good win for Swinton to end this farcical end to the season. Look forward to seeing our new squad develop under the new coach to meet the demands of what will be a very tough Championship. Let’s hope both teams can be competing again at the close of next season.

    A better dawn.

    It sure is a bright morning after! The team has gelled well over the Shield games and deserve a medal (or contract?) for getting that result. It would have been a hellish two weeks to another final, especially for the players. Had the RFL simply promoted the two top (by a mile) L1 teams, without relegation to get 14 teams, the result they wanted could have happened. As it is Bradford could still have to beat Swinton! A very tough Championship again next year, possibly without Toronto, but the prospect of some very good gate receipts with the likes of Widnes, Leigh, maybe Bradford. Our nemesis York too! Apparently, funding is set to reduce by 10%, so squad, sponsorship, marketing and community liaison plans will be a challenge, to say the least. An even bigger challenge were we heading to League1. Look forward to seeing the future develop.
  15. A magnificent 32 -22 win along with a Swinton loss gives us another season in the Championship. Well done to all for today's effort and a fitting end to Alan Kilshaw's tenure at Hornets. Now let's build again for what will be perhaps be an even tougher 2019 season. Superb
