Promotion final DVD souvenir – A Year to RememberDate published: Monday, December 21, 2015
Oldham RL Club have released a DVD of their promotion-clinching win against Keighley Cougars — full game plus celebrations — which was their 14th win a row and which completed a hugely successful season in League One.
Winning 19 of their 22 league games, they finished top to lift the League Leaders Shield and then beat second-placed Cougars 31-20 in the Promotion Final on a historic day at Whitebank to receive the League One championship rose bowl and to earn their place in the Championship next season.
Scott Naylor, later to be named League One coach of the year, led his young side to promotion at the third attempt, watched by a Whitebank record crowd of 1,405, after suffering Grand Final defeats in 2013 and 2014.
The DVD is a perfect souvenir of the Roughyeds’ big day and a limited number, priced at £13.50, will be available in time for Christmas. To order, ring the club on 07904898177.
As Roughyeds look ahead to the start of the Championship campaign with the visit of London Broncos to Bower Fold, Stalybridge on Sunday, February 7, opportunities for fans to buy season tickets at quick-buy prices have been extended to noon on Thursday.
They can now be purchased between 9am and 5pm from the sponsors’ suite inside Whitebank Stadium each day this week up to and including Wednesday, and then from 9am to noon on Thursday.
Covering 14 or 15 games, they are priced at £180 (standing) and £200 (sitting) with concessions fixed at £144 (standing) and £168 (sitting) and under-16s at £20 (standing) and £30 (sitting).
Turnstile prices will be £15 and £17 for adults; £12 and £14 for pensioners; £3 and £5 for under-16s.
