United against Prostate Cancer

9 April 2014

At our last home game, Fleetwood Town Football Club and all fans united against Prostate Cancer.

The purpose of the day, with the Cod Army playing Rochdale,  was not only to raise money but awareness of the disease.

Guest of Honour and competition winner, William Robinson, had the honour of leading both sets of players out onto the pitch walking out to great reception from all the fans. Prior to leading the teams out, William had a tour of Highbury Stadium and was welcomed in the boardroom by both Fleetwood and Rochdale Directors.

As well as bucket collections in and around the ground, to enhance the day further and continue to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer the Community Trust put on a Walking football game at half time, this involved fans participating in a keenly contested 5 a-side game, playing to the rules of walking football. Although there were some that tried to run the game was played a great spirit and for a great cause with lots of support.

Overall the our support for Prostate Cancer was a great success which is credit to both sets of fans. 

Prostates Cancer UK is a national charity supported by the Football League and the 72 clubs, if you would like to know more about the charity and how to donate see
