Reserve team pre-season warm up games

Date published: Wednesday, December 22, 2010

JOHN Hough’s Roughyeds’ reserve-team squad will play three pre-season warm-up games against Dewsbury Rams, Halifax and Keighley Cougars.

Diary dates are as follows:

Saturday, February 12 (2pm) Oldham v Dewsbury at Whitebank.

Wednesday, February 23 (7.30pm) Oldham v Halifax at Whitebank.

Thursday, March 3 (7.30pm) Keighley Cougars v Oldham.

The season proper kicks off the following week. Roughyeds will be involved in a ten-team competition, providing 18 games divided equally into nine at home and nine away.

For now, Houghie and his boys are working hard on pre-season work, much of which is carried out at Viking Fitness in Lees. As you can read elsewhere on this website, Houghie has been in generous mood this week, giving his charges time off to spend a bonding session at Manchester Paint-balling arena in Chadderton, followed by a meal and some relaxation at Mario’s in Yorkshire Street, Oldham.
