HERE'S a saucy calendar that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'soccer strip.'

All the models are Dagenham and Redbridge FC players who bravely agreed to bare all to help promote awareness of testicular cancer.

The charity project is the brainchild of marketing manager of the Disability Association of Barking and Dagenham, Tim Baggs, and the Primary Care Trust.

Tim wanted to come up with an idea to raise cash for charity, and to highlight the disease which affects 2,000 men in the UK every year.

Club captain Anwar Uddin said: "At first some players were a little unsure of taking part, but after discussing it and realising that men rarely check themselves for testicular cancer we thought it was a great idea and an ideal way to promote awareness."

Mr Baggs said: "We can't thank them enough for taking part. They've been great."

The A3 21-month calendar, running right through to December 2009, costs £7.50 and will be launched the first week of April, to coincide with testicular cancer awareness week.
