Celebration shirtDate published: Tuesday, December 1, 2015
NEWLY-PROMOTED Oldham RLFC have launched a limited-edition celebration shirt to commemorate the club’s most successful season since it was formed in 1997
This special shirt, priced at £38.99, is available immediately and can be ordered in time for Christmas from 9.30am on Tuesday, December 1 (today) via our on-line shop. Go to the club’s website at www.roughyeds.co.uk and click on ‘shop’ and follow the links to the special shirt to be worn by supporters of the 2015 League One champions.
The design is completely different to the soon-to-be-revealed playing kits for 2016. It incorporates the embroidered club crest and the wording ‘2015 League 1 Champions’ on the front and the crest and a reference to ‘League One Shield Winners’ on the back.
The shirt will make an ideal Christmas present and is sure to become a collectors’ item.
After several near misses, Roughyeds finally gained promotion to the Championship after winning 19 of their 22 league matches to finish top and pick up the League Leaders Shield. This was then followed up by a 31-20 victory against second-placed Keighley Cougars in the play-off final which saw Scott Naylor’s men promoted and crowned CHAMPIONS !
