Wycombe Wanderers are delighted to welcome Prostate Cancer UK to Adams Park for Saturday’s clash with Exeter City.
Volunteers will be collecting money outside the ground this afternoon and with your generosity will be raising vital funds to help relegate the most common cancer in men.
Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has also been showing his support. He’s joined forces with more than 30 managers to give the most vital team talks of their careers after chilling statistics showed prostate cancer kills one man every 45 minutes.
The gaffers include Burnley’s Sean Dyche and Newcastle United’s Rafa Benitez as well as Championship duo Simon Grayson and Dean Smith, who both have personal connections with the disease. All will also be wearing Prostate Cancer UK’s iconic ‘man of Men’ pin badge on the touchline during the 2017/18 campaign as the leading men’s charity cranks up the serious message.
Ainsworth said: “I’ve walked the walk for Prostate Cancer UK and now I want to talk the talk.
“Prostate cancer affects one in eight men, and shockingly one man will die every 45 minutes from this disease. Imagine being down to 10 men at half-time and then losing another before the full-time whistle. That’s unacceptable.
“I was proud to lead Wycombe at the Prostate Cancer UK Stadium against Luton Town, and to walk side by side with Jeff Stelling and so many inspirational people during his epic Men United March. That’s why I wear my Man of Men pin badge with pride on the touchline and why we must continue to raise money and awareness to fight back against this terrible disease.”
Prostate Cancer UK is the Official Charity Partner of the EFL. Their “Man of Men” logo sits proudly in the squad numbers of every one of our player’s shirts. It also adorns the lapels of football managers and pundits across the land.
