Roughyeds notice board

Date published: Thursday, October 21, 2010

ROUGHYEDS fans should be aware of the following notice-board items:


Following the club’s successful summer camps for youngsters earlier in the year there will be a similar event at Whitebank Stadium next week during the schools’ half-term holiday.

Open to all youngsters aged seven to eleven inclusive, it will run from Monday to Thursday, starting at 9.30am each day and finishing at 1.00pm.

As with the summer camps, the cost per child is £30 to cover the full four-session camp, or £25 per child if there are two or more from the same family.

To join, or to seek further information please contact the club on 0161 628 3677 or pop into the office on Lansdowne Road, Chadderton which is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

As the camp starts on Monday parents would be advised to contact the club before 5pm tomorrow (Friday), although failing that a call as soon as possible after 9am on Monday would suffice.

The similar camps last summer proved extremely popular and there are early indications that next week’s event will also be well attended.


As announced earlier, the club will be putting on a social event at Whitebank on the evening of Friday, October 29 (7.30pm) as a way of showing its appreciation for all club volunteers and those fans who worked so steadfastly to enable us to move into Whitebank for our first game there last May.

It will take the form of a fun event based around a Race Night and the club is hoping all those fans who rolled up their sleeves to help out on the ground will turn up to help the night go with a real swing.

If you chipped in with assistance please give the club a call on 0161 628 3677 in order to confirm your attendance so that the club will have an idea about how many people to expect.

We are anxious not to overlook anybody but we don’t have contact numbers for everyone who offered their services at the ground, so if you fall into that category and have not talked to the club about coming to the party please give us a call as soon as possible.


Halloween will soon be upon us once again — how the year has flown by — and we are delighted to remind everyone that Whitebank will be staging its first Roughyeds’ Halloween Party on Saturday night, October 30, starting at 7.30pm.

Similar parties have proved extremely popular in years gone by and there is every reason to believe that yet another Whitebank ‘first’ will go down equally well this year.

With supper and prizes included, admission is £3 for adults and £1 for under-16s accompanied by an adult with prizes up for grabs for best Halloween fancy dress and the scariest pumpkin.

For more information or to get your tickets contact the club on the number above or pop into the office on Lansdowne Road, bearing in mind the opening hours, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Tickets are also available on the bar in the Whitebank clubhouse.
