Oldham RLFC Reserves
Rugby Oldham was pleased to be the inaugural sponsor for the club's Reserve & U23 side which has progressed so well under the guidance of former coach and Oldham player, John Hough, and more recently, new coach Paul Ashton.
We are delighted with the progress that has been made and fully endorse the club's structured approach to attracting young players into the fold.
Most members of the local rugby league fraternity - and all at the Roughyeds - shared a concern that in recent years many talented local youngsters have had to turn to out-of-town professional clubs to progress their rugby league.
At that time we shared with the club a hope that in the not too distant future an Oldham first team could take to the field made up primarily of local born-and-bred talent. Just three years on and a number of those young players have successfully made their first team debut and others are just aching to follow suit.
