The midfielder, who is also a trained barber, collaborated with Clitheroe’s Form Barber shop, based at Holmes Mill, to auction off haircuts to Rovers fans.

Conway, who is the Player Ambassador for the hospice, said: “After visiting the hospice earlier this year and seeing the fantastic work the staff do, I wanted to try and help out.

“And it was an automatic choice to do something with hair as it’s what I’m qualified to do and it’s something a bit different.”

Forms Barbers have donated a percentage of their takings on the day and a raffle was held featuring Rovers memorabilia including Bradley Dack and Charlie Mulgrew signed boots. Along with the auction, Craig has also set up a Go Fund Me page which he hopes to get him over the £1,000 mark.
