Gainsborough Trinity FC have backed a worldwide campaign to show men’s cancers the red card, by promoting healthy lifestyles and the importance of regular check-ups.
Blue September is a campaign founded by the Urology Foundation to reduce the number of men dying needlessly from cancer.
Boss Steve Housham said: “It’s not well known that men are actually at higher risk of developing a wide range of cancers than women.”
“That’s why I didn’t have to think twice when NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) asked us to back Blue September locally.”
“As a club that plays in blue and understands the importance of looking after the body, this campaign is a perfect fit for us.”
