Supporters of Football League clubs are being called upon to help their club's representative pick up the coveted 'Men United' Orange Jersey during this weekend's London to Amsterdam cycle challenge in support of The Football League's Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK.

More than 150 members of the football family will be cycling from London to Amsterdam in support of the charity, including representatives from more than 50 clubs.

The peloton sets of from Leyton Orient's ground in the early hours of Friday morning and will stop off at Colchester United's Weston Homes Community Stadium, en route.

Ex-England star Luther Blissett among a host of former players signed up for the exciting 150-mile challenge, which hopes to raise £150,000 for the charity. Port Vale Manager Micky Adams will also saddle up, alongside former Republic of Ireland international striker Alan Lee and ex-Arsenal star Perry Groves, who will lead a contingent from radio station talkSPORT.

Also in the starting line-up are Middlesbrough duo Steve Vickers and Neil Maddison, Simon Milton from Ipswich Town, Cheltenham Town legend Shane Duff and many more, who will all ride alongside fans.

Aside from the former professional contingent, other club representatives are also involved in the challenge, with job titles of club staff taking part ranging from sports scientists to scoreboard operators, not to mention a handful of club mascots.

After completing the 90-mile sojourn to Harwich by dusk, the intrepid team cross the Channel overnight, before riding a further 60 miles across the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland. The climax sees the peloton arrive in the country's capital and its network of canals, cobbled streets and wonderful architecture.

The orange jersey will be awarded to the top fundraiser when the ride starts on Friday, but will be worn at the start of the second day by the participant who has raised the most in the preceding 24 hours.

One in eight men will be affected by prostate cancer and there are 250,000 men living with the disease in the UK.

Head of Events at Prostate Cancer UK, Andy Sallnow, said: "The fact that there are more than 150 riders on the start line represents the incredible progress this event has made over the past 12 months and we are really grateful for all of The Football League clubs and fans supporting the event with such enthusiasm.

"Our unique 'Orange Jersey' will not only add a splash of colour as we make our way through 150 picturesque miles into The Netherlands, but will also work as a fundraising incentive. We look forward to the fans digging deep as those representing their club step on the pedals and raise money to combat a disease that kills one man every hour in the UK."
