A Toolstation NCEL Division One game next weekend that sees two brothers face each other is to become a special match supporting their mother who has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
Lucille Rollinson, the mother of Glasshoughton Welfare winger Connor and Worsbrough Bridge Athletic youngster Calan, has endured three intense rounds of chemotherapy since October and is now waiting to have her bone marrow transplant as a match has been found.
Worsbrough are due to host Glasshoughton next Saturday (10th February) and the two clubs and Lucille's family have decided to turn it into a support day. They also want to raise awareness of the symptoms for AML.
Bucket collections for Leukaemia UK and players wearing t-shirts displaying ‘Showing Our Support for Luce’ during the warm-up are notable aspects of the planned day.
