FANS of Oldham Rugby League Club can get discounted meals at Frankie and Bennys, on the Elk Mill Retail Park, in a new sponsorship deal with the Kingstone Press League One club.

Having sponsored hooker Danny Whitmore last year, the Elk Mill branch of the Italian-American restaurant chain, have now backed young prop Richard Joy in the 2015 League One season, which began with a 23-16 victory against derby rivals Rochdale Hornets at Spotland on Good Friday and continued with a 38-10 win against Coventry Bears in our first home game.


As part of the link-up, Roughyeds fans can get up to 20 per cent discount off main-menu meals, not including drinks.


All they have to do is produce an Oldham RLFC season ticket or turn up wearing a club replica shirt, scarf or any other item of club leisure wear as proof of their support for the Roughyeds, whose ground is at Whitebank Stadium, Whitebank Road, Oldham OL8 3JH.


Postal address for the club office is Oldham RLFC, c/o Oasis Academy Oldham, Hollins Road, Oldham OL8 4JZ (tel: 0161 624 9630, ext 70552).


Kristy Abernethy, general manager of Frankie and Bennys, Elk Mill, said: “We are delighted to continue our association with Oldham Rugby League Club in the 2015 season.


“Richard Joy is a young player just starting out on his semi-pro adventure with his home-town club  and we hope our support will help him on his way.


“In the hope that supporters will also give Richard, the team and the club all the encouragement and backing they deserve, we will extend a warm welcome in the restaurant to all Roughyeds supporters and offer them up to 20 per cent discount on main meals.”


Oldham RLFC’s next home game is at Whitebank on Sunday week, April 26 (3pm) when London Skolars are the visitors..
