Stand By for TV appearance

Date published: Friday, November 23, 2012

SCOTT Naylor’s new-look Oldham RL squad can stand by for a TV appearance next season.

It won’t be confirmed until Monday, when the 2013 Championship One fixtures are released, but it is understood that a league game featuring Naylor’s men will be televised live by Premier Sports.
Roughyeds have never previously played in front of the Premier Sports cameras and their last appearance live on Sky Sports was the 2010 Championship One Grand Final against York City Knights in which they were beaten 25-4.
Their biggest TV season in recent years was 2009 when four games were televised in as many months.
They beat London Skolars at Boundary Park 28-22 in the league, but lost the other three — 32-18 against Featherstone at Leigh in the Northern Rail Cup quarter final; 20-18 at York in Championship One; and 28-26 to Keighley Cougars in the Grand Final at Warrington.
Season ticket holders who wish to sit in the same seats in 2013 have only one more week to renew before those seats are put on general sale.
All categories are on offer until December 14 as follows: standing, adults £100, concessions £80, under-16s, £25; seats, adults £115, concessions £100, under-16s £45.
The club’s office in Lansdowne Road, Chadderton (tel: 0161 628 3677) is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
