Latics Player and Wish FM duo Ashley Houghton and Neill Rimmer are set to cycle to Bloomfield Road in aid of Joseph's Goal, along with Head of Media Ed Jones on match day as the team gear up to take on Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship.

Former Latics captain Neill took part in the first Joseph's Goal event to Blackpool last season, alongside Head of Academy Recruitment Kenny Williams (pictured below) and says it's a great opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause.

Ahead of the ride, Neill said:

"The club has supported Joseph's Goal since day one, and great things have been done to raise money for research into NKH.  We're hoping to keep raising the profile of the charity and a second ride to Blackpool is a great way to do that.

"Last year the ride raised over £2,000 and this year we're hoping to help raise more, but we also want to keep raising the profile of Joseph's Goal at the same time.

"A lot of work goes into organising an event such as this, and a lot of credit has to go to everyone involved. Please, please, please give generously."

Our team will be documenting their journey to Bloomfield Road, so make sure you check the official Twitter account for updates.
