Bloomers wants to maintain tries run
Date published: 05 June 2014
DAMAGED thumb or not, Dale Bloomfield will be desperate to play at Hemel Stags on Sunday to maintain his scoring run on Oldham’s left wing.
Like Mo Agoro on the right flank, ‘Bloomers’ is seeing a lot more of the ball this season as a direct result of the Roughyeds’ more expansive style of play.
Both wingers are scoring freely and playing with a smile on their face as the men on the inside work to orders and use the full width of the pitch. Bloomfield has scored in each of Oldham’s last three games and lies joint second in the Championship One score list.
“So far, so good, but I’d like to double the number of tries I scored last year and that’s my target,” said the former Rochdale winger.
Agoro, also in a rich vein of form, has scored six tries in the last five games and has seven in total.
“I like to think I’m coming to terms with senior rugby now,” said the former Leeds Rhinos academy player. If I keep helping my team mates to win matches that will do me.”
Oldham go to Hemel seeking their fifth win in a row.
LIFELONG fan John McAndrew is the new chairman of the Oldham Roughyeds Supporters’ Association (ORSA), succeeding Nigel Marland, who died in January.
Aged 71, John lives in Royton and is closely associated with the parent club, Oldham RLFC, as its Club Cash lottery co-ordinator.
