Players running a mile for Brendan

IN a fabulous initiative launched by his old club Dewsbury Celtic, Oldham players, as well as others from clubs throughout rugby league territory, are running a mile and then nominating somebody else to do it, all in support of Roughyeds assistant coach Brendan Sheridan who is in hospital battling coronavirus.

The campaign is widely publicised and promoted on Twitter where players are taking selfies, giving out messages and then nominating somebody else to do the same either before or after their one-mile run.

In his message to Brendan, Cameron Leeming said: “Get well soon mate. We are all thinking about you. You’ll be back using this tripod again soon no doubt.”

Cameron then nominated Harry Aaronson to do something similar.

The Oldham club, meanwhile, repeated its earlier message of support to Brendan, who is the brother of Castleford Tigers No 2, Ryan Sheridan, and who was head coach at Dewsbury Celtic for several years before Matt Diskin invited him to become his right-hand man at Roughyeds.

Said Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton:

“Everyone at the club is thinking about him at this tough time for both him and his family.

“The family have been keeping me up to date with his situation by telephone.

“All our thoughts are with Brendan and his family and we wish him a speedy recovery.”


Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
