Another way to help - join OuRLeague for free!
Date published: 27 March 2020
Roughyeds are highly encouraged by their increased numbers.
Oldham RL Club's OuRLeague membership figures have risen to 2,385, but other clubs' totals are also going up and Roughyeds have dropped a place from 12th to 13th out of 25 Betfred Championship and League 1 clubs since the last count a month ago.
Back then, Whitehaven were 11th, Oldham 12th and Dewsbury 13th, but the Rams have jumped to 11th with Whitehaven and Oldham each moving down one place.
Roughyeds, however, are highly encouraged by their increased numbers.
Only 20 behind Whitehaven and 39 down on Dewsbury they could easily climb two places if more Roughyeds fans join OuRLeague for their regular rugby league fix while the sport is on lock-down.
Said Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton: "It would be a big boost for everyone at the club if we climbed over Whitehaven and Dewsbury, given that a club's OuRLeague membership total is a main criteria for 'Return on Investment'.
"And it doesn't cost a penny to join - it's free.
"All fans have to do is to make sure when signing up to give Oldham as their favourite club.
"There is still plenty of content going on the OuRLeague app every day, including top games from the past, so it's well worth joining for free, not to mention the benefits to the club in these times of unprecedented hardship and uncertainty."
