We are now into the final week of the Keep Your Eye On The Ball 'Focus Fortnight' (30 March - 12 April), which aims to get football fans thinking about their testicles and the importance of checking for any unusual lumps or bumps.
The fortnight is run by Everyman, the UK's leading male cancer campaign, in partnership with The FA and The PFA.
This year I lent my support by appearing in an advert which showcases my unique 'ball skills'.
If you haven't already seen it you can watch it by simply logging on to www.keepyoureyeontheball.org. It's a fun way to shed light on a very serious issue because if blokes check themselves regularly and catch testicular cancer early, there is a 99% chance of survival.
