Unbelievable Jeff! TV legend Stelling returns for fourth charity walk for Prostate Cancer UK

Durham Cricket welcomed television legend Jeff Stelling yesterday as he marched across the country for Prostate Cancer UK for a fourth time.

The long- serving Sky Sports presenter has returned to take on four walking marathons in four regions, starting yesterday in the North East. His route started at Newcastle United, where he finished his 2017 March, and ends at rivals Sunderland – with the Emirates Riverside visit in between.

Durham fans can support Jeff by donating here.

Jeff then heads to Yorkshire, before marching through Merseyside on Wednesday. His March for Men finishes up in London on Saturday September 4th by which time he would have walked 100 miles in a week.

His aim? To fund lifesaving research to improve testing, treatments and care for those affected by the most common cancer in men.

Jeff said: “One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. I deal in stats, but that one still shocks me.

“Last year, we lost the great Ray Clemence to prostate cancer. A terrific goalkeeper and a terrific human being.

“I also lost my mate, Lloyd Pinder, to the disease a few months earlier. I met Lloyd on the second day of my very first march for Prostate Cancer UK. This highlights what an indiscriminate disease this is, and it’s for men like Lloyd and Ray, their families and everyone affected by prostate cancer that we march again.”
