Oxford away — new dateDate published: Thursday, August 6, 2015
SUBJECT to RFL approval, Oldham’s last game of the regular League One season at Oxford will be brought forward 24 hours to Saturday, September 12 (3pm kick off).
Roughyeds have agreed to play a day early because Oxford University require their Iffley Road Stadium on the Sunday for a game against Waseda University, from Tokyo in Japan.
As tenants, Oxford RL were asked to make the switch.
Said Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton: “Oxford have given us reasonable notice so we have agreed, hoping it won’t prove too disruptive for players getting time off work.
“It’s not ideal because it gives us a day less to get ready for the game after a tough clash at Whitebank against Swinton Lions on the previous Sunday (September 6).
“But we’ve done it once previously this season, when we went to Barrow on a Saturday in May, so we’ll agree to bring the game forward, although the switch will still need to be approved by the RFL.”
