Super Geoff Horsfield was back at Fulham this morning as Craven Cottage hosted the launch of the Premier League’s new health initiative, Premier League Health, designed to raise awarness of male health issues.
The scheme, funded by the Football Pools, will help improve the state of men’s health.
Horsfield, who has recently resumed his professional career after recovering from testicular cancer, was delighted to back at the Cottage.
I was fortunate to be diagnosed with testicular cancer at an early enough stage to be able to fully recover and return to playing football with Lincoln City. I know from my experience that awareness of potential health problems and then engaging with the health services is a problem for many men. That is why I fully support the efforts of the Premier League and the New Football Pools to use the iconic nature of Premier League football clubs and players to start addressing these issues
