Look out for collectors around the ground!We’re delighted to welcome Men United to Highbury for tomorrow’s game against Oldham Athletic.
A team of volunteers from Fleetwood Flyers, our Over 50’s walking football team, will be around the ground tomorrow helping raising money for Prostate Cancer UK to help the fight against a disease that will affect one in eight men in their lifetime.
Men United is Prostate Cancer UK’s movement for everyone who believes men are worth fighting for.
Visit Prostate Cancer UK’s website to find out how you can get behind Men United. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved, from bike rides to pub quizzes and match day collections to walking with Jeff Stelling.
Whatever you love to do, you can do it for Men United and help beat a disease that kills one man every hour in the UK.
For example you could represent The Cod Army in Football to Amsterdam 2016 this June. Wayne Hayhurst has already signed up as one rider and is our VIP guest at tomorrow’s game and appears on the front cover of the programme.
Whether it's big or small, signing a petition or running a marathon, you’ll be a part of Men United. By donating and supporting our matchday volunteers, you’ll be doing your bit to help Prostate Cancer UK in their aim to shift the science over the next ten years so that prostate cancer is a disease the next generation of men need not fear.

- It’s the most common cancer in men, with over 330,000 living with the disease.
- Without urgent action, prostate cancer is set to become the most common of all cancers by 2030 which is why we must all act now.
