Oldham players are running a mile for assistant coach Brendan Sheridan, who is battling coronavirus in hospital.
Roughyeds players are running a mile and then nominating somebody else to do it, with Sheridan’s old club Dewsbury Celtic launching the initiative.
Sheridan, who is the brother of Castleford assistant Ryan Sheridan, was head coach of Dewsbury Celtic for several years before linking up with Oldham ahead of the 2020 season.

Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton said: “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.”
