Date published: Friday, July 29, 2011

OLDHAM RL CLUB chairman Chris Hamilton will head a fans’ forum at Whitebank on Tuesday, August 16 (7.30pm), specifically to inform fans “of the club’s current ground situation”.

Tickets at £4, including pie and peas supper, will be on sale in the social club before and after the two games at Whitebank  this weekend and also from 9am Monday at the club’s base in Lansdowne Road, Chadderton (tel: 0161 628 3677).

Roughyeds have three games over three days this weekend, the reserves at home to Leigh Centurions on Saturday (2.30), the first team also at Whitebank on Sunday (3pm) against Workington Town and the Scholarship under-18s taking on Keighley Cougars away on Monday night (8pm).

Prop Luke Stenchion (back) will face a fitness test before coach Tony Benson names his team to do battle with Workington, but Danny Bravo (cut eye), Mark McCully (cut eye) and Shaun Robinson (head injury) have been passed fit and will play.

The Reserves have been beaten only once at home all season while the first team have been beaten only twice at Whitebank — by Whitehaven in the Northern Rail Cup and by Swinton Lions in Championship One.
