Join the fight against prostate cancer and together we can make a real difference.


Acrefair Youth Football Club are proud and committed to be helping raise awareness of prostate cancer so every man, woman and child are aware of it and what they can do to help with the fight.  This cancer has been a silent killer for many years now and if we can make men aware of the cancer and its signs, then we will be helping save lives.  The statistics gathered by Prostate Cancer UK are alarming; for instance, did you know that currently 1 man every 45 minutes dies from prostate cancer in the UK, that's 2 men during the time it takes to play a game of football.  1 in 8 men  will get prostate cancer in their lifetime and more than 2,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in Wales alone".


For the first time, more men are dying from prostate cancer each year than women are from breast cancer, making this male disease the third biggest cancer killer in the UK.  New figures released by Prostate Cancer UK reveal that 11,819 men now die from prostate cancer every year in the UK, compared to 11,442 women dying from breast cancer.  This means that the male-only disease is now the third most common cancer to die from, after lung and bowel cancer.  Since 1999, the number of women dying from breast cancer has been steadily decreasing, while prostate cancer deaths are still on the rise.  During that time, breast cancer has benefited from a screening programme, significant investments in research and more than double the number of published studies compared to ones for prostate cancer.


To help with the fight against prostate cancer, Acrefair Youth Football Club's youth section have created a number of initiatives to help generate awareness of Prostate Cancer UK.  All youth players will be wearing emblazoned armbands with the Prostate Cancer UK logo at all home and away fixtures and coaches will be wearing the Prostate Cancer UK 'Man of Men' lapel badge.  At all home games, the club will also be selling Prostate Cancer's 'Man of Men' lapel badges to all spectators with 100% of  funds collected going to Prostate Cancer UK.  Additionally the club, who is also reliant on charity donations to operate, have chosen Prostate Cancer UK as its named charity and any fundraising work the club undertakes will see 20% of all donations taken going to Prostate Cancer UK.


We hope to gain the support of other youth football clubs in the Wrexham and District League to get behind Prostate Cancer UK.  All players have fathers, brothers, uncles, granddads and cousins who all could be at risk and if we stand up together we can make a real difference - #TogetherWeStand.  I would also like to thank Golden Finishes of Cardiff who supplied the player armbands and are continuing to support us with our campaign.  We decided to work with a reputable supplier from South Wales so we could unite all borders in Wales as one to help with the fight.


By 2030, prostate cancer is set to become the most commonly diagnosed cancer of all, so get involved and help make prostate cancer a disease that the next generation of men (our boys) do not fear.


I would love to hear from you to see how we can work together to win the fight.

Below are just some of the very basic facts and figures about prostate cancer.  Further details and information can be found by clicking here!


What is the prostate?

Only men have a prostate gland, it’s usually the size and shape of a walnut and grows bigger as you get older.  It sits underneath the bladder and surrounds the urethra - the tube that men urinate (pee) through.


What is prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer can develop when cells in the prostate start to grow in an uncontrolled way.  Prostate cancer often grows slowly to start with and may never cause any problems.  But some men have prostate cancer that is more likely to spread.  This needs treatment to stop it s`preading outside the prostate.
