A terminally ill youngster has been named in Rochdale's match day squad for tonight's match against Hartlepool.
Five-year-old Joshua McCormack has a terminal brain tumour, but tonight he'll be named as one of Dale's seven substitutes for the Checkatrade Trophy clash.
Sadly, Joshua is too ill to attend the game, but tomorrow he'll be visited by his manager Keith Hill and his new teammates at a local hospice.
It is a real honour to name Joshua McCormack as a substitute for tonight’s game. He has touched the hearts of everyone at Rochdale Football Club since we met him for the first time back in February.
No child should have to go through what Joshua is going through and we, as a club and a group of players, will continue to do whatever we can to support him and his family.
Joshua's shirt, number 55, will hang in the away dressing room this evening, and his name will also appear on the team sheet for the game at Victoria Park in the North East.
Joshua, who is from Rochdale, was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year. His family were given the devastating news at the end of September that his illness is now terminal.
