At the dawn of the month of ‘Movember,’ Manchester City is pledging its continued support for the campaign to raise awareness of men’s health, in particular prostate cancer.
As blokes across the globe begin to grow their ‘Mos,’ the club would like to take the opportunity to encourage all of our male supporters to attend regular health checks.
A staggering one in nine men in the UK will at some stage in their life be affected by prostate cancer and often there are no symptoms.
One former Blue, who all fans will be familiar with, is living proof that one check-up can save your life.

Billy, seated in the centre, is one of the club's all-time greats and sported a particularly fine handlebar effort.
The combative midfielder played a crucial role in helping John Bond turn things around and getting City to the 1981 FA Cup final.
And Tommy had the dubious pleasure of scoring for both sides in the 1-1 draw with Spurs. 10 on 10 for this fearsome Viking-style effort.
Arguably one of the best uncapped players of his era, Paul gave yeoman service to City before winning the league title with Everton. Since retiring as a player he has returned to City to coach at the Platt Lane Academy.
It's 1989 and 'Madchester' is in full flower, but hard-working midfielder Neil went for a look that would not have been out of place in a mid-70s west coast rock band.
The Wolves boss is probably sick of the sight of us, but we like Mick, he's a good fella and once a Blue, always a Blue! This vintage shot had to be included.
Now we're in the early 1990s and goalkeeper Tony Coton makes a lone stand on the moustache front.
He was only here briefly, but David's famous 'tache was well to the fore.
Some might call this effort slight and wispy, but not me, Iron Nige can do what he likes!
