Oldham have unveiled a new charity club t-shirt in the aim of raising funds for local NHS charities.
The club were closely affected by the current Covid-19 pandemic, with assistant coach Brendan Sheridan spending two weeks on a ventilator and in a coma after contracting the virus.
He is now continuing his recovery at his home in Dewsbury, and Oldham want to thank the NHS workers who looked after him by raising money.
The t-shirt features the NHS logo on a rainbow coloured background, while the club badge has also been adapted to feature the NHS blue colour.

“The club is showing its appreciation of the amazing work done by the NHS and other key workers during the pandemic,” said club chairman Chris Hamilton, himself an NHS volunteer worker.
“We have been wanting to do something like this for a while but it is only now, with lockdown easing, that factories are able to accept orders.”
The shirt is on sale at £29, with half of the profits being donated to local NHS charities.
They are available to buy via the club’s online store, which you can visit by clicking HERE.
