Date published: Tuesday, September 14, 2010

OLDHAM Rugby League Club will be running official club coaches for fans to the Co-operative Championship One Grand Final at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday week, September 26. The final against York or Blackpool will kick-off at 3.05pm in a Co-operative Finals day triple header which also features the Conference final at 12.30pm and the Championship final at 5.30pm.

The Whitebank Stadium club will be open on the morning of the game and the team will assemble and leave from Whitebank at 12.30pm to be given a rousing send-off by hundreds of fans.

“We hope supporters will get down to the ground in numbers, wearing their club colours, to wish the players well and see them on their way,” said club chairman Chris Hamilton.

Supporters coaches will leave Whitebank at 1.00pm. Cost per person is £10. Fans will have the choice of travelling on a bus returning at 5.15pm after the Roughyeds game or at 7.15m straight after the Championship final.

The club would welcome early bookings on 0161 628 3677 — the number to ring also for inquries about the sale of triple-header tickets which are available now at the Roughyeds office in Lansdowne Road, Chadderton.
