    Thanks SB, misread my own writing! Have now corrected it, to avoid anyone picking up the wrong address.

    Anyone making plans to go to the Coventry game in 3 weeks time, should note that the venue for their games for the rest of the season, is the home of Rugby Lions RFU, Webb Ellis Road, Rugby, CV22 7AU.
  3. When down in Llanelli with Oldham earlier this season, we were in conversation with some of your more mature fans and said 'your time will come' as we could see the progress being made. This was followed up by our home match against you and once again, we could see that with the tremendous effort and enthusiasm being made by all the players, you would soon reap the rewards. Well, the first win proves the progress made and is a big boost for the confidence of all concerned - congratulations and the best of luck for your continued development.
  4. I would just like to put the record straight, on behalf of those of us who were involved at the time Oldham RLFC took over the ground in 2010. The ground and club house were in a real mess prior to the takeover and there was a lot of time, hard work and goodwill put into making it fit for purpose by a number of volunteers, some of whom committed short term and others for a considerably longer time. Anyone who hadn't been around the ground, in the clubhouse or changing rooms prior to that work, would have had no idea what work was achieved. The ambition was there, but the problem was, there were no funds available for materials, hence no real obvious development and the grants that everyone assumed would be forthcoming, didn't materialise for various reasons. In clarifying the issue, I am not taking anything away from the Avro club. They have worked hard and there have been substantial improvements which I applaud them on, especially that done by their own volunteers. However the initial work was, I understand, funded by the transfer of their land on Broadway to Oldham Council and those funds were soon absorbed by the early improvements that were done with the pitch etc. The Avro club now, no doubt wishes that further funding was currently available to enable them to continue the upgrade, but as we all know, the money is just not there for clubs a the lower level of any sport and that is very sad. Long live Oldham R.L.F.C. and AVRO F.C. - good luck to both clubs.
  5. Looking forward to supporting the lads who play in the game, anyway. I'm still buzzing from the wins against Coventry and especially, Keighley and hope to see the spirit and commitment from those matches continuing week after week, whatever the competition. It's good for morale!
  6. What a great win! What a great team performance! What a wonderful Saturday night out! That result has been coming for a while and last night, everything came together - well done to all the lads. The only down side was Johnno, in what seemed to be an accidental collision with Danny Bridge, going off with a facial injury - hope he is okay.
  7. Strong squad for the game - looking forward to going over there this evening. COME ON OLDHAM
  8. ……….. and others.
  9. No, there are others on the Roughyeds' planet, particularly in the over 60's club!
  10. Very well done to the lads, on today's performance. It was a really competent and enthusiastic team effort, displaying plenty of skill and enthusiasm in both defence and attack. The display proved what the squad is capable of and it bodes well for the weeks ahead, provided we can keep pretty injury free.

    1895 fixture

    CC, I actually agree your sentiments about the competition. I'm just making the point that, as a game, it should be a good one and the players deserve good support, whatever the game.

    1895 fixture

    The 1895 Cup matches may be a distraction, but it's the same for all of the clubs involved and whether or not you like the idea of the competition, Sunday's game against Whitehaven is certainly a very exciting prospect. I'm really looking forward to it, especially with the players we have available this week and one thing for sure, the goal kicking job will be a lot easier without the gales we had at Llanelli last Sunday.

    Danny Langtree

    Splendid news and a massive well done to the club, on such an important and timely move. It certainly says a lot for the club, that Danny is happy to return to the club and sign a contract up to November 2020. Welcome back Danny and get back to enjoying your rugby with Oldham, starting on Good Friday - bring it on!!
