  1. Well done to the team on another win. Onwards and upwards.
  2. Why is there even a need to be asking this question? I thought the club had a new marketing team. Has the engine stalled already?
  3. Great win in spite of all the negativity surrounding the competition. Well done
  4. Ah, that explains why everyone had been so quiet about it
  5. How did it go? I hope it was a good turnout and all the kids enjoyed it so they'll be looking forward to the next one and recommending it to their friends.
  6. Well done to the players on a good win and the hoped for improvement to the 'points for' figures in spite of the long journey to Llanelli. Fingers crossed that this is a turning point after the lacklustre start to the season.
  7. I'm sure none of the above comments could have been aimed at the sterling job you do, Mr. Naylor. (I wish I'd seen your unedited post )
  8. Sad that it didn't work out for Langers at Hull but great news that he chose to return to the Roughyeds. Hope it does turn out to be a Good Friday for the Club, and the team redeem themselves for dozing off during the second half at Newcastle. Good luck.
  9. Great start, well done to all concerned.
  10. Good luck to all concerned for a great junior supporters club launch day. As has already been said, it's a no-brainer in the endeavour to bring in younger supporters. Well done to the Supporters Trust for the sponsoring it. The goody bag looks great and I hope Roary's Pride will become a roaring success ?
  11. The council in their infinite wisdom decided a decade or so ago that it needed a rebrand. The current logo that you see as a bullseye is supposed to represent "one Oldham" and I remember much criticism at the time about it resembling a Polo Mint.
  12. It's good to hear that Mr Hamilton was at Swinton looking well and in good spirits. However, having read the match report I'm not sure such a nip and tuck close game could have done his stress levels much good ? Best wishes to Mr H for his continuing recovery.

    Great result against a Championship side, hope that's the shape of things to come ?
  14. I did indeed keep the Roughyeds in mind as we saw in 2019 and very much hope that Garry Schofield's prediction is spot on. I wish the team, everyone connected with the club and all supporters a very happy, healthy and successful New Year.
  15. Great news, a massive pat on the back to Mr Whisker for volunteering his expertise. 2019 is already beginning to look like an exciting year for the Club both on and off the pitch. ?

    A Merry Christmas to all Roughyeds supporters, the team, everyone who works so hard for the Club and to all RL fans. And as it's the season of goodwill that also includes Little You 'No' Who. Have a great time and stay safe everyone.
  17. I share your reservations about signing up to Our League for exactly the reasons you mention. Although I am well into the 55+ age group it's my aversion to the sneaky way these data harvesting companies suck you in that puts me off rather than my lack of tech savvy. As I don't attend matches I feel that I should support the Club in any other way I can so I have been thinking about signing up to Our League but I'm very reluctant to give in to what you quite rightly refer to as almost a form of blackmail.
  18. Isn't it maybe the enforced temporary change of management that has brought about the change? Whatever the reason, surely no-one wants to be looking a gift horse in the mouth.
  19. Some great ideas there from R64 and others. Getting flyers out to pubs, shopping areas etc. should be a priority because it's a relatively low cost way to spread the word. There has been little publicity in recent years and I believe there are many Oldhamers who aren't even aware that the town still have a semi-pro rugby club. I'm not sure if radio advertising would be cost-effective but maybe a few press releases to local stations (eg. 96.2 The Rev, Tameside etc) could grab some free publicity (sorry if that's piling even more work onto poor Dave Naylor ?). Logic raises a good point about needing more volunteers which again is about spreading the word. There may be potential volunteers out there but if they're not aware that they're needed or in what roles, they're unlikely to offer their services. As R34 said, the Club are now offering the olive branch so it looks as if they're willing to listen and act upon at least some suggestions so maybe things will improve and there's an exciting year ahead for you all. Fingers crossed.

    Why do you want to know? Come on, spill the beans, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is curious as to why you have this obsessive interest in the business of a rugby club to which you have absolutely no goodwill.
  21. Awww, don't send him away R34, the other trolls seem to have gone into hibernation and Lnia is the only one left to provide some light entertainment now ?
  22. I can't see it. Do you have a link or the item number? Not that I'm thinking of buying it of course ? Just curious about what's so special about it that the seller thinks anyone will buy it at that price.
  23. R34, you are right in saying that not knowing for sure what Oldham actually get from the lottery is off-putting for potential new members. I was all ready to sign up but as I don't have money to just throw around I'd hate to think I was paying to help Yeds' competitors or, even worse, SL clubs. It would indeed be useful for the club to clarify and make a push for more members if the club gets something worthwhile out of it. Going off the number of posts on the forum regarding lack of information, maybe a change of name from ORLFC to ORLFSS (Secret Society) would be appropriate.
  24. If that's the case, what do Roughyeds get out of it?
