YOUR GUIDE TO

SELF EXAMINATION

Do you know what’s normal and what isn’t?

Get up close and personal with our self examination guide and

#checkyournads!

STEP 1

The best time to check yourself is after a warm

shower or bath as your skin is most relaxed; so take

the time to sit back and relax before you get hands

on.

STEP 2

Only examine one at a time by taking

the testicle between your thumb and

first two fingers and roll with consistent

gentle pressure. Feel for any lumps or

changes in shape, size or consistency.

Familiarise yourself with the epididymis

towards the back of the testicle. It

should feel rope like and tender to

pressure, this is normal.

STEP 3

If you notice a change or you feel a lump, don’t panic.

Most lumps are not cancer but if you do notice anything

unusual or anything concerning you should visit

your doctor as soon as you can. If caught early enough

testicular cancer can be cured.

REMEMBER

Most men have one testicle that is larger than the

other or find that one tesicle may hang lower than the

other or both of these. This is very typical and is definitely

not a reason to worry.

Football League To Be Renamed

The Football League is to be re-named the English

Football League as part of a comprehensive corporate

and competition re-branding.

The new title, which will come into use at the conclusion

of the current season and ahead of the

2016/17 campaign, will be shortened to EFL for

everyday use across the game.

The EFL name will be accompanied by a stunning

new visual identity featuring a dynamic circular

arrangement of 72 balls in three swathes of 24,

representing each of the League’s member clubs

and the respective divisions they play in.

The new logo is just the fourth

in the 127 year history of the

world’s original league football

competition and, for the first

time, each club will be

presented with its own bespoke

version in its individual playing

colours, ahead of the new

season, for it to retain in

perpetuity.

The Football League’s Chief

Executive, Shaun Harvey said: "The new EFL name

rightly emphasises the central role our clubs play at

the heart of English professional football.

"In an increasingly challenging global sports market,

it is absolutely essential that sports properties

can project a modern identity that not only

resonates with their regular audience but is also easily

recognisable to a broader audience of potential fans,

viewers and commercial partners.

"We believe the EFL name and brand will give our

competitions an identity that is new and distinct, while

at the same time retaining our unique heritage. As

such, it will be something that all fans can identify with

- whether they be young or old, at home or abroad.

Harvey also confirmed that the League would be retaining

the three existing divisional titles, “The Championship,

League One and League Two divisional titles

have proven popular with fans since their introduction

in 2004 and have since been used by leagues in other

countries and in other sports. It is therefore our intention

to incorporate them into the new EFL brand,” he

said.

The introduction of the EFL name

follows a thorough process

of consultation that included

detailed surveys, interviews

and focus groups with

clubs, stakeholders, commercial

partners and more

than 18,000 football supporters.

Consultees included the

Football Association,

the Premier League, the Professional Footballers

Association, the Football Supporters Federation, the

League’s competition sponsors (Sky Bet, Capital One

and Johnstone’s Paint), its broadcast partners (Sky

Sports, Channel 5 and Pitch International) and the

Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Move For Movember

MOVEMBER 2015 will kick off early this year on Saturday 31 October when Mitre and The Football

League will again back the campaign by using a special ‘Mo’ branded Delta Hyperseam Fluo ball in the

thirty six matches that take place that day.

Movember and the Football League are asking all clubs to auction these unique match balls signed by

their respective first team squads at a subsequent home game during the month to raise vital funds for

the men’s health organisation’s cause areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health

and physical inactivity.

Last year, Movember raised over £50,000 through the Football

League community and expects many clubs to once again take up

the challenge of growing a mo or committing to MOVE to raise

awareness and funds for men’s health.

Even though the Movember Foundation will always be all about the

moustache, there is now more than one way to champion men’s

health next month. MOVE is a new initiative encouraging Mo Bros

and Mo Sistas to get physically active and make a commitment to

improve their health while raising funds.

The challenge is to MOVE every day of Movember – 30 MOVEs in 30 days. How you MOVE each day is up

to you. Whether it’s a workout one day, walking 30 minutes to work the next, a game of ping pong or an

epic bike ride, no MOVE is too big or small.

As Mo Bros unite and clean shave on the 1st of the month, they become walking, talking billboards

helping to generate awareness and raise vital funds as they wear Movember’s hairy ribbon, the moustache

for 30 days.

“This Movember, we want Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to think about mind, body and mo by challenging each

other to grow or MOVE for 30 days.” says Sarah Coghlan, UK country director for Movember. “Being active

is one of the best things you can do for your health, so the addition of MOVE makes it even easier to do

something fun that’s good for you and men’s health. Just sign up at Movember.com.”

The Movember Foundation spans the globe across 21 countries. Since inception, a global army of over

5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have grown or supported the growth of a moustache. To date more than

£400 million has been raised globally and over 1000 men’s health projects have been funded.

Football vs Homophobia

Hollywood star Sir Ian McKellen recently paid a visit to Macron Stadium to support Bolton Wanderers'

and the Community Trust’s involvement in the Football v Homophobia campaign.

In line with the work of the organisation, youngsters from schools around Bolton took part in an

inter-school football tournament at the club’s Lostock academy training ground last month.

Spending time in the Platinum Suite at Macron Stadium after the conclusion of the competition, the

youngsters participated in a workshop which allowed them to engage with the issue of sexuality and to

learn about how homophobia can hurt and offend people.

A campaign which aims to eradicate homophobia by educating children from a young age, Football v

Homophobia is an international initiative which works across all levels from grassroots to professional

football clubs.

And following the workshop, the pupils were awarded their

medals from the earlier tournament by world-renowned

actor Sir McKellen

who praised the organisation for their efforts.

“What a wonderful initiative

it is,” he said. “Sport is all about getting along with people

– you ultimately cannot be a good team without that.

You cannot succeed unless everyone is doing it together.

“There’s no place for name calling and saying

that we’re all different – we are all different, thank goodness and for the children to be learning that at

their age is absolutely fantastic.”

FvH uses football as a tool to remove prejudice based on gender identity and sexual orientation and to

take a clear stand against LGBT discrimination.

In 2011, Fare and FvH joined forces to work across the different levels of football and help bring about

a positive change.

As part of this partnership, several initiatives, such as conferences, workshops, tournaments, and

more, have been organised to advocate for LGBT rights and ensure that everyone can enjoy, participate

in and practice football.

Football League Fan Survey

Derby County is pleased to confirm Porterbrook Leasing Company as the new presenting partner of the

North West Corner at the iPro Stadium.

The rail-based company have taken up the sponsor of the North West Corner, which will now be known

as the Porterbrook North West Corner.

The sponsorship agreement also entitles Porterbrook to entertain clients on matchdays and there are

also community aspects of the partnership.

Porterbrook specialises in the leasing of all types of railway rolling stock and associated equipment.

As one of the three major rolling stock leasing companies, Porterbrook has been active in the UK rail

industry since it was privatised in 1994. By providing freight and train operating companies with modern

rolling stock they can be assured of high standards of reliability and performance from their fleets.

Passengers can also benefit from comfortable services and the latest technology.

Since privatisation, the industry's

approach to train operation has

changed dramatically. With many

new operators entering the market, a different perspective to service provision has emerged. Whether

operators are seeking a fleet that

is provided to them service-ready

each day, or whether they prefer

to retain in-house responsibility for

daily maintenance, Porterbrook

offers a range of lease options to

suit the full spectrum of

requirements.

This support extends to third party

suppliers, and, Porterbrook has

developed strong relationships

with material suppliers to manage

commercial aspects on behalf of

its customers. Similarly, if

engineering modifications are required, Porterbrook is ideally placed to implement improvements.

Derby County’s President & Chief Executive Sam Rush said: “We’re thrilled to announce Porterbrook as

the new presenting partner of the North West Corner.

“We’re really pleased that a local business will be featuring prominently at the iPro Stadium and add

them to our list of club partners.”

Paul Francis, Porterbrook’s Managing Director, said: “Porterbrook is delighted that it is the new presenting

partner of the North West Corner Stand at Derby County.

“The football club is at the heart of the community within which Porterbrook operates and invests and

as a business we look forward to working with our partners at the iPro Stadium on local and community

initiatives.”

Players To Look

Chris Gunter has made over 60

caps for wales, however he has not

featured once in their qualifying

campaign. He is currently playing

full back for reading FC. He is unlikely

to be picked for wales in euro

2016 however if their fullbacks get

injured Chris Gunter will be first

choice to fill in.

This experienced LB/CM has only

played 6 times in Irelands qualifying

campaign. He has not been

playing much football for burnley

this season however he can play

two positions for Ireland and can

be a versatile player. We think he

will be included in the preliminary

squad but unlikely that he will get

past that stage.

Carroll has played 5 games for

Northern Ireland in their qualifying

groups. He has only conceded 4

goals against tough opponents in

their group. He is experienced at 38

years old and we think he will be

included and start in the team just

because of his experience.

Adam Henley is our young star

pick as he made his full debut for

Wales in the friendly match versus

the Netherlands on 13 November

2015. We believe Henley has a lot

of potential and will be included

in Wales euro 2016 team. Don’t

expect many minutes from him as

he will used as a back up to their

already established full backs.

Baird is another guarnentee player

that Ireland will take to the euro’s.

He has played 9 games in the qualifiers

and has been a pivotal player

in their campaign. He is 33 years

old and experienced hard hitting

centre half.

Experienced mid

during their euro

paign. Known fo

will be a starter

tournament.


For At Euro 2016

Norwood has been had a pivotal

part in N.Irelands qualifying

campaign playing ten matches for

them and provided 3 assists. He

is a centre midfielder with good

passing and tackling abilities. No

one thought northern Ireland would

make it through their group let

alone finish top. He will be taken

and starting every game for them

no doubt about it.

Gudmundsson has played in 7 of

Icelands fixtures in their euro campaign.

He has played as a forward

for his country but has failed to

score a single goal and providing

just one assist. Iceland could use

him as a centre attack midfield

player where he plays for Charlton

athletic. We think he will be picked

for Iceland in euro 2016 but will

find himself on the bench.

Currently on loan from Watford

playing for Championship team

reading Vydra offers the Czech

Republic a pacey attacking option.

We don’t think he will be selected

for the first team however will be

used as a impact sub.

Andrea Weimann is a player Austria

must take to the 2016 euro’s in

France. He has played a pivotal

part in both Derby’s and Austria’s

football campaigns. We will be

shocked if he does not get selected.

Murphy has played in 6 of Irelands

qualifying games with just one

assist to his name. He is a strong

attacking midfielder which can

play anywhere on the front line.

He played 65 minutes of the game

against Germany which Ireland

won 1-0. As he has been picked to

play against the top teams in his

qualifying group we believe he will

be picked for euro 2016 but used

sparingly.

THE NEW GUYS

In recent weeks there has been a string of managers

being fired or leaving their respected clubs.

This in turn has opened up positions for new

managers to take their turn in battling it out in the

Championship and for some old faces to make a

return and bring back the glory the fans know they

can bring.

So who are these men and what experience will they

bringing along with them?

Huddersfield

David Wagner’s footballing career has seen

him spend the majority of his playing

career in Germany for clubs such as

Mainz and FC Schalke. Whilst being

born in Germany and playing

national football for the German

youth teams, Wagners farther

was American and made him

elgible to play for the USA

in which he made 8 international

apperances for them.

Under 21’s at Craven Cottage to making sure the first

team are on the track to success in the

Champonship.

Grants previous managing experience came from 1

unsuccesful season at Norwich City so he will be

looking to improve and show his expertise in

management.

Blackburn

Paul Lambert is a tough Scottish

manager with Premier League

experience.

His managing career has seen

him spend 4 years as head

coach of Dortmund II.

He was close with working closely

with one of the worlds current top

managers Jurgen Klopp and this

working relationship

led to rumours Wagner was going to follow

Klopp to Merseyside before his iminant arrival at

The Yorkshire Club just days after the rumours

surfaced. Will he be able to bring some of his

experiences from working with Klopp to the

John Smith’s Stadium and push the blub

into the top half of the table come the

end ofthe season?

Fulham

Peter Grant is currently caretaker

manager at Fulham promoting

him for his role managing the


ON THE BLOCK

Lamberts playing career has seen him play for a

couple of top european teams such as Borissia

Dortmund and an 8 year career at Celtic. Lambert

Was a Scottish international playing all the way

through youth level and making 40 senior

apperances for his country.

QPR

Neil Warnock is one of the English Games

most decorated and longest surving managers.

Warnock is more known for his managerial

successes than his playing career but

you cant ignore the fact he had a

playing career for a number of

well known english teams for over 11 years, This

playing career has seen him play 327 at senior level

for clubs such as Chesterfield, Barnsley and Crewe.

Neil Warnock is currently in a Caretaker manager

position at his former club QPR. Warnock started his

managerial career right at the bottom of the

footballing world at Gainsborough Trinity FC but

swiftly moving on to Burton Albion.

Warnocks successes soon started to come once

he got into league football managing Third Divison

team Notts County in which he managed to get

them succesive promotions to reach the First

Divison. This succes made him a target for clubs

such as Chelsea and Sunderland who he ended

up turing them down to stay at County until a poor

season saw them miss out on the newly formed

premier League and ultimately lose his job.

Warnock moved to Huddersfield Town where it took

him just two season to gain them promotion and

get himself into the hearts of Terrier fans for

evermore a thing new manager David Wagner will

also be looking at doing whilst hes in charge.

Neil eventually found himself in charge of his boyhood

club Sheffield United where he had his longest

managerial stint and further great sucess by finally

getting a team into the Premiership .

Burnley FC in The Community

It was a single email from his doctor’s surgery that kick-started Ian Cardy’s life-changing journey with

Burnley FC in the Community.

The email, sent in April of this year, detailed an innovative, free-of-charge new programme Burnley FC’s official

charity were piloting called Men’s Healthy Weight Management Programme. In search of motivation and

feeling inspired by the varied and dynamic activities on offer, Ian signed up to the 12 week course.

“The programme started with a thorough health check”, Ian, 45, explains. “When the team told me my results;

that my body age was 60 years old, I was dehydrated and my weight was over 17 stone – I was genuinely

shocked. I’d been told before by my doctor that I needed to lose some weight, but the idea I was living in the

body of a 60 year old man, aged only 45 years old in reality, stayed with me and I was determined to make

changes”.

Ian joined a group of 15 men, varying in age and fitness levels and became a regular at the Monday evening

sessions. With a programme including boxing classes, treasure hunts in Towneley Park, boot camps and gym

workouts – there was plenty for Ian to get his teeth stuck into.

“I really liked how the sessions were different every week. We weren’t simply taken to the gym; we were out

and about, trying different sports and the challenges always kept us on our toes. Throughout, the team were

totally supportive and approachable too. A real highlight for me was when we ran up to the Singing, Ringing

Tree from Turf Moor. It’s something I could never have done before I started the programme.”

And the results of Ian’s commitment to the programme are visible for all to see. “My family, friends and work

colleagues can’t believe the change in me in just a few months”, Ian says. “I’ve dropped three stones now, my

body fat percentage has halved and my body age is now down to 31 years of age! I feel better than I have in

years and the little changes I’ve made to my diet have made all the difference.”

And Ian is quite literally conquering mountains now he’s feeling so fit. In September, Ian joined a group of ten

fundraisers to climb Wales’ highest peak, Snowdon, to raise money for Burnley FC in the Community.

“It was a fantastic experience personally but it was also great to take part in the Snowdon Walker to give

something back to the charity. Burnley FC in the Community works with the most vulnerable people in our

area; from young people to senior citizens and they are so passionate about they do. I’m hoping to take part

in another fundraising event for the charity in the future – I’m looking for next the challenge!”

Burnley FC in the Community would like to congratulate Ian on his incredible achievements and also thank

him for raising almost £700 for Burnley FC in the Community.


School Comes First

Seven Burnley FC in the Community volunteers have just returned from nine days in the Lower Volta

Region of Ghana, carrying out vital building work at a local primary school.

This is the second year the department has run the trip in conjunction with African Adventures, a UKbased

volunteer travelling organisation. Over the course of a week, the team contributed to the construction

of a new classroom block at the 300-student Dedzidi Primary School.

Siobhán McNamara, Partnerships and Events Executive for Burnley FC in the Community, who travelled

with the group to Woe said: “The work we carried out during our time at the Dedzidi Primary School was

demanding but incredibly rewarding.

"As the local builders we worked with have no access to basic tools, we were required to mix the cement

by hand before moulding each individual brick.

"Despite this, we formed around 200 bricks over the course of the week and we then used these to

build three dividing classroom walls. It was brilliant to meet the children who will benefit from the new

build and we were made to feel so welcome by everyone we met. We feel very proud to have worked

with such a special community.”

The group’s work was managed by The Young Shall Grow International (TYSGI), a non-profit organisation

based in Woe that works with numerous local partners to assist the community’s most needy

children and adults.

Each volunteer raised over £2000 to take part in the trip, with a percentage of the funds generated

also contributing to Burnley FC in the Community’s charitable work in Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.

The team took 14 suitcases full of football kits donated by Burnley FC fans, as well as pens, books,

toys, clothes and shoes.

The volunteers who travelled to Ghana were; Abbey Merrifield, Chris Wilson, Denise Mclaren, Jane

Priest, Joe Robinson, Lisa Merrifield and Siobhán McNamara.

Former Wolves Man Launches New Art

Were he still involved in playing football then Jody Craddock would no doubt have been among the legion of Premier League

and Championship players trying to catch up on a bit of rest this international weekend.

Instead however, the popular 40-year-old will be very much on

duty at the launch of his new art collection at the Antidote Art

Gallery in Lutterworth.

The exhibition has been a year or more in the making, and marks

a watershed for the footballer-turned-artist who has hopefully

found an identity to excite both the critics and potential

purchasers alike.

Parachute Payments

At an EGM earlier today, Football League clubs voted to increase the parachute payments made to clubs relegated

to the National League from the beginning of the 2016/17 season.

At an EGM earlier today, Football League clubs voted to increase the parachute payments made to clubs relegated

to the National League from the beginning of the 2016/17 season.

The two clubs relegated from Sky Bet League 2 currently receive 50% of the equivalent Basic Award payment

to League 2 clubs for one season, but from next season onwards will be paid:

- 100% of the equivalent Basic Award payment made to League 2 clubs in the first year following relegation.

- 50% of the equivalent Basic Award payment made to League 2 clubs in the second year following relegation

(unless a club achieves promotion back to The Football League at the first attempt).

The Football League's Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said: “In recent seasons we’ve seen a number of clubs

suffer severe financial trauma following relegation from The Football League and in some cases fold altogether.

As a result, it became increasingly clear that we needed to review existing arrangements and address our

approach to managing the financial transition for clubs in these circumstances.

"I would like to pay tribute to our clubs for taking this

decision which is testament to their collective solidarity, given that the League's financial distribution formula

means that the bulk of this money will come from funds

that would otherwise be provided to Championship

clubs, who are ultimately the least likely to benefit from

it."

Clubs also voted to amend the existing parachute

payment regulations within The Football League which

will see:

- Clubs relegated from the Sky Bet Championship

receive 11.1% of the Basic Award payment to

Championship clubs for one season.

- Clubs relegated from Sky Bet League 1 receive 12.6% of the Basic Award payment to League 1 clubs for one

season.

This change will ensure that clubs receive an enhanced figure that is proportionate to the wider increase in

financial distributions to clubs emanating from the League’s new broadcasting agreement. For illustrative purposes,

this would have equated to £230,000 and £85,000 respectively for the current season (whereas relegated

clubs actually received £120,000 and £50,000 respectively under the previous regulations).

Clubs have also introduced a new regulation requiring them to ensure that their ground and playing squad are

available for a period of 4 days following the end of the regular league season to play or complete any previously

postponed or abandoned matches. Additionally, existing regulations relating to clubs that default on transfer

payments to their fellow clubs were strengthened.

Save The Children

University Campus Milton Keynes will

continue to support talented youngsters

in the region by extending its

partnership with MK Dons Football

Club.

The partnership will see UCMK

support the club and, in particular,

continue to sponsor seven MK Dons

Academy teams, ranging from the

Under-9s to Under-15s.

Dr Gordon Mellor, Campus Director at

UCMK, said: “We are committed to not only provide high quality educational facilities in Milton Keynes but

raise the profile of the importance of this type of education within the local area.

“Partnering with MK Dons has given us a great opportunity to build that awareness locally but also support

some talented individuals coming through the youth ranks at the club.

“We are delighted to continue the partnership.”

The partnership, which runs until at least the end of this season, includes corporate sponsorship which will see

the University brand across various MK Dons digital and print platforms, as well as big screen adverts at stadiummk.

University Campus Milton Keynes has been a club partner since the 2013/14 season making this its third season

as a partner and supporter of the MK Dons Academy.

The Dons’ youth teams are overseen by Director of Youth Mike Dove, who said of the link between the club and

UCMK: “It is fantastic to see the University of Bedfordshire getting behind the Academy and showing support to

local boys aiming to achieve their dream.

“This partnership also highlights to our young players how important education is and points to an alternative

future if they do not make it in the professional game.’’

Qpr To Embrace Social Media

Club confirm official partnership with Academia ...

QPR have reached agreement with Academia to become the

club’s first official social media partner.

The relationship will provide Academia – who are experts in

the supply of software, hardware, managed services and

training solutions to Education, Government, Not-for-Profit,

Business, Pro-Media and Employee Benefits markets – with a

prominent social media presence across QPR's platforms.

The partnership, which will begin with immediate effect, will

see QPR trial the latest technology for behind-the-scenes

content, with Academia also providing product placement for

commercial and educational usage for the club and QPR in

the Community Trust.

Ian Taylor, QPR’s Head of Media & Communications, told

www.qpr.co.uk: “We are delighted Academia have agreed to

come on board as our first official social media partners.

“We pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking and innovative media department and Academia share similar values in their line of business.

“I’m sure we can bounce ideas off each other over the coming weeks and months and utilise the latest technology to provide Academia with

case studies that will in turn benefit us both.”

Academia Director, Mark McCormack, who is also a lifelong QPR fan, added: “As a fast growing Technology Group we’re constantly looking at

innovative technology and developing solutions, particularly flexible mobile platforms which meet the needs of SME and Educational institutions.

“Our core values are very much in line with QPR’s vision for the future and we are therefore looking forward to this partnership and introducing

exciting technology to the club.”

Charlton Educate About Health

Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) have been teaching children in Bexley and Bromley how to live healthier lifestyles

Jake Martens reports

Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) have been teaching children in Bexley and Bromley how to live healthier lifestyles thanks to a

second Healthy Heart Grant from national heart charity Heart Research UK and sandwich brand SUBWAY® stores.

To celebrate the halfway point of the project, a pre-match presentation took place before the Saturday’s Championship home game against Sheffield

Wednesday at The Valley, with some of the youngsters involved in the project attending the game.

CACT received a grant of £10,000 to run the six-week programme called “My Goal is a Healthy Heart” in 30 primary schools across Bexley

and Bromley, teaching youngsters about healthy eating and exercise. It followed a successful project last year in 34 schools in Greenwich that

engaged over 4,000 children.

This year’s project, supported by the Addicks’ players, has included visits to schools to give 30-minute workshops to teach children about

healthy lifestyle choices, and is followed by half an hour of activities, which could include football, basketball, cricket or other sports.

The courses cover the benefits of exercise, healthy eating, the circulatory system, alcohol, drugs and smoking awareness. Parents from each of

the schools are also given the chance of health checks, health advice and referral to other services.

The project has already visited 15 schools and reached 1,350 children through the six-week programme and is aiming to reach 11,250 people -

2,700 children through the classroom programme, 8,100 families through homework tasks and 450 adult health checks.

Elements of the programme were also delivered through workshops to 700 children during summer holiday camps, and to parents and children

through summer housing estate projects where they engaged with children and adults.

Head of Football and Sports Development at CACT, Sean Daly, said they were very pleased to have received the further grant, which has given

Charlton Athletic Community Trust the chance to engage with local schools in different forms of activities other than sport.

“We’re delighted with the work we’ve done so far with this project in engaging children and their parents in healthy lifestyle awareness as well as

increasing physical activities for children,” he said.

“We received funding for this project last year, and are very grateful to receive a further year of funding from Heart Research UK and SUB-

WAY® stores.”

Heart Research UK Lifestyle Manager Barbara Dinsdale said that working with the football club is an ideal way of reaching out to the schools

and the wider local community.

She said: “Football clubs like Charlton Athletic are the perfect ambassadors to deliver healthy heart messages to young people to encourage

them to adopt good lifestyle habits themselves, and share them with their families and friends. We’re impressed with what they have achieved

so far through this project.”
