Oldham salutes England Under-19 prospects

Date published: 08 July 2022

The selections of Waterhead’s Callum Murphy and Scott Parnaby, plus Dylan Turner of Oldham St Anne’s, to the 21-strong England under-19s Community Lions squad for the European Championships in Italy in September have been recognised by the Oldham Amateur League and the Oldham RLFC Players’ Association.

All three players were invited to attend an Oldham Amateur League meeting where they were presented with cheques towards their tour costs by chair-lady Anita Halliwell and secretary Phil Bradbury on behalf of the Amateur League, and by Ray Hicks on behalf of the Players Association.

Callum, Scott and Dylan each received £200 from the Oldham Amateur League and £100 from the Players’ Association, which will also sponsor Higginshaw vs Waterhead seconds tomorrow (Saturday) on Oldham Edge and have a large presence at Sunday’s Betfred League One derby clash between Oldham and Rochdale Hornets at the Vestacare Stadium, where numerous Heritage number certificates will be presented to former players in the Hospitality suite.
