MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

Rugby Oldham is currently one of the largest Rugby League Supporters Trusts in the country.

We have decided to push on and promote the trust with a membership drive.

To kick this off, Linda Mills & Brian Walker attended the Oldham Amateur League Board Meeting this evening to see if together we can push the trust along. We already have a tremendous relationship between the two organisations, and in fact the League currently hold a spot on the Rugby Oldham Board.

Currently all the towns Amateur clubs are members of the trust, but we are really hoping we get more individual members from the clubs.

More news will follow shortly.
