New strips and raring to go

Date published: 05 February 2018

After several seasons playing in traditional red and white hoops, Oldham RL players will proudly turn out in a more modern design in the 2018 Betfred League 1 season which starts for Scott Naylor's men at Whitehaven on Sunday (18th).

Betfred have installed Roughyeds as second favourites to win the league title at 6-1, behind Bradford Bulls (4-9) whom they rate as odds-on to win promotion automatically.

With ten new signings, new sponsors, different kit suppliers, new dual-registration partners in Salford Red Devils and a return to the newly-refurbished and renamed Vestacare Stadium, there's a fresh look about Roughyeds this year - and that also stretches to newly-designed home and away kits, supplied by Steeden.

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton: "This doesn't mean we won't look again at hoops in the future, but we've settled on a new design for the home kit which we think fans will like and want to wear.

"The same applies to the away kit, comprising of Irish green and Forest green, which is of a completely different colour and design to anything we've ever had before.

"We appreciate that fans have been waiting for a while for us to release details of the kit, replica shirts and other leisure wear, but we hope they will think the wait has been worthwhile.

"The players have already got their training kit and some of their leisure wear and the feedback from the dressing room is that they like it very much."

Replica jerseys can be ordered at £38 (children) and £45 (adults).
