Oldham Rugby's Fight For The Right
- Oldham Council
- United Kingdom
As you will be aware of the recent events surrounding the use of Boundary Park, an online petition is now set up so that you can support ORLFC's cause to play there.
Oldham RLFC is a vital sporting organisation to the town of Oldham. Since the tragic demise of our spiritual home, Watersheddings, and then the sad death of our beloved Oldham Bears, the reformed ORLFC needs to build on the success of last season and needs a permanent base to play their games.
Boundary Park, now a stadium for both sports since Oldham Athletic Football Club sold it to OMBC to clear their debts, has been no longer made available to rugby due to excessive rent increases by OAFC. It is up to the stadium committee, run by OMBC to help out the rugby in making Boundary Park their home for this season and beyond. After all, a surface has been laid to accommodate both sports and has been laid to the cost of £500k. ORLFC needs a home within the town of Oldham and Boundary Park is the only viable option, unless the council build ORLFC a new stadium as promised in the early 90s. I ask anybody who not just wants rugby league but sport in general to survive, to sign this petition.
