ROTHERHAM United players are used to playing in red - and showed they are all heart too, when they pledged support for a health campaign.

The Millers are backing the British Heart Foundation’s red for heart campaign, which aims to raise funds for research into heart disease.

The club gets youngsters involved in regular sport in the hope of avoiding future cardiac problems and now plans to teach them vital lifesaving skills as well.

Alex Wilson, United health officer, said: “They will acquire the skills and knowledge of resuscitation, the recovery position, choking, and bleeding in a life-threatening situation.”

Striker Paul Warne, Millers’ health ambassador, said: “It’s great to be able to support the foundation.”

Team-mate Dale Tonge said: “We’re proud to wear red on Saturdays and it’s great to wear red for a good cause too.”
