Oldham: No time to relax

Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton says it is no time for his club to relax after their 30-16 win against relegation rivals Workington Town which took them five points clear of the drop zone.

The victory lifted them above Swinton Lions into fifth place in the eight-club Kingstone Press Championship Shield.

Hamilton says the club wil working round the clock to see Roughyeds finish the season as high up the Championship table as possible.

“Psychologically, we jumped another hurdle on Sunday,” Hamilton said.

“To overtake us, either Workington or Whitehaven would have to win three more games than us with only six to play. That’s a big ask.

“We owe Swinton Lions one and we need to go there on Sunday and play a lot better than we did last time.

“Whatever happens, though, there will be no relaxing and no let-up in our intensity; that applies to me and to everyone else at the club.

“There’s still 12 points on offer, a lot to play for, and a whole lot of hard work to be done on and off the field. Nobody will be taking a foot off the gas.

Scott Turner, our new signing, was impeccable on his debut, but it was a performance from 1 to 17 and Sam Gee epitomised our fighting spirit when he had to go on at prop because Craig Briscoe had come off injured.”
