Keyse hails fan support

Director praises Prostate Cancer UK backing

Director Trevor Keyse, speaking in Saturday's bumper 100-page edition of The Lion, has expressed his delight at the way everybody associated with the club has responded to the decision to name Prostate Cancer UK as Millwall's main sponsor back in the summer.

This weekend's encounter with Barnsley is the focus match of our Heroes in White campaign which has been running throughout November, aimed at raising awareness and money for the cancer charity.

As part of the campaign, Steve Lomas' men will play in white, and with £5 from every one sold in the Club Shop being donated to Prostate Cancer UK, the club are urging supporters to wear the white away shirt.

Keyse, who lost his father to prostate cancer and was diagnosed with the disease himself back in 2011, has nothing but praise for the work being done alongside Prostate Cancer UK.

"I am pleased at how supportive our players, staff and fans have been, but I would not have expected otherwise," he says in the programme.

"The disease is beatable, and Prostate Cancer UK are doing a fantastic job in getting the message out there, funding research into better diagnosis and treatments.

"What I did, and what I advise every man in their 40s and upwards to do, is talk to your doctor about a simple blood test which includes a PSA (prostate specific antigen) check."
