'Titch' to DJ Oldham RL Awards Night

Date published: 24 October 2019

Oldham Rugby League Club's end-of-season Players' Awards Night will be held at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday, November 8.

It will be similar in format to previous years, but a new attraction will be an appearance as Music Man and DJ by the inimitable Ritchie 'Titch' Hawkyard, whose heroics at full-back last season earned him a place in the hearts of Roughyeds fans and contributed hugely to the team's promotion to the Betfred Championship.

He wasn't on his own by any means and there will be several candidates for each of the individual trophies on offer.

The club needs the votes of fans to determine who wins the Supporters' Player-of-the-Year award and fans can vote online via the club website up to midnight on Friday, November 1.

Fans who don't have access to the internet can post their nomination to: Players' Awards, Oldham RLFC, Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Road, Limehurst Village, Oldham OL8 3JH (giving your name, address and contact number) or drop an envelope into the office by hand between 10am and 3pm on Friday (Oct 25), Monday (Oct 28), Wednesday (Oct 30) or Friday (Nov 1).

The evening will look back on Scott Naylor's last year in charge which finished with 11 wins from the last 12 games --- and a wonderful Promotion Final.

It promises to be a fabulous Roughyeds evening with the price of a ticket, £15, including a pie and mash supper with a vegetarian option.

You can book and pay online via the club website or purchase your ticket by cash or cheque at the club office (days and times as above).

Numbers are limited and tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
