Cup tie tickets

Date published: Tuesday, April 3, 2012

TICKETS can be bought now for Oldham RL Club’s fourth-round Carnegie Challenge Cup tie against Barrow Raiders at Whitebank a week on Sunday, April 15 (3pm kick off).

The tie is NOT all-ticket so fans can pay at the turnstiles.

However, in anticipation of another good crowd and in the hope of avoiding turnstile congestion, the club as ground tickets on open sale now from the office in Lansdowne Road, Chadderton (tel: 0161 628 3677). They will also be available from the Whitebank snack bar at the Reserves’ game against York City Knights on Thursday (8pm).

The Barrow game is an all-pay, shared-gate cup-tie for which season tickets are invalid.

Seat season-ticket holders, however, can claim and pay for their seat up to 5pm next Tuesday, April 10 on production of both their season-ticket book and voucher A.

After that deadline, remaining seats will go on general sale up to 5pm on Friday, April 13.

The Lansdowne Road office is open 9am to 5pm on week days, but it will close at 5pm this Thursday for the Easter holiday and re-open next Tuesday, April 10 at 9am.

Once seat tickets go on general sale next Wednesday, April 11, anyone who has already bought a ground ticket can upgrade to a seat.

Normal league match prices will apply.

That’s (standing) £12 adults, £10 concessions, £4 under-16s; (sitting) £14 adults, £12 concessions, £6 under-16s.

Two Barrow players charged with fighting in their third-round win against French club Lezignan, player-coach Darren Holt and winger Lee Haney, have been suspended after submitting early guilty pleas to the RFL.

Haney has been banned for two games and will miss the cup tie at Oldham, but Holt must sit out only one match which will be cleared on Friday when the Raiders play Gateshead Thunder at Craven Park.

Roughyeds fans are reminded that Friday’s derby against Rochdale Hornets at Spotland will kick off at 1pm, fixed by Hornets as the home club.
