MPs from across the political divide took on an all-star team of Prostate Cancer UK supporters in a closely-fought football match at Millwall FC on Wednesday as part of our Men United v Prostate Cancer campaign.

In an entertaining affair, a team of high-profile MPs turned a 4-0 deficit into a 6-5 victory, overcoming Men United Allstars which included former Watford, AC Milan and England striker Luther Blissett. Read a full report here and see video of the match.

Millwall manager Ian Holloway was honorary manager of the home side and delivered a rousing pre-match talk to both teams on the pitch.

The match, organised by Prostate Cancer UK to raise awareness of the disease, raised £1,100 for the charity as the Parliamentary team pledged to donate £100 for each goal scored by either team.

The team of Parliamentarians included Shadow Sports Minister Clive Efford and Manchester MP John Leech, who bagged four of the team’s goals while Millwall’s record goalscorer Neil Harris featured for both teams.
