Soccer Saturdays Jeff Stelling is taking on an epic charity walk in March to help in the battle against prostate cancer. The Sky Sports presenter has teamed up with mens health organisation Prostate Cancer UK and will complete 10 walking marathons in 10 days, from his beloved Hartlepool United to Wembley between March 21-30.Clocking in at more than 250 miles, Jeffs Men United March - menunitedmarch.org - will see the 60-year-old check in on 31 football clubs and he will be joined every step of the way by close friend, and Hartlepool United chief executive, Russ Green. Our very own Jeff returns to his roots to reminisce En route, he will be joined by famous friends and colleagues and people affected by prostate cancer.Jeff launched the Men United March live on Soccer Saturday this weekend, at the end of a first-person piece on the fortunes of his beloved Hartlepool, the first time he has ever filed a report for the show.He said: I deal in statistics, but the ones we are dealing with here are shocking. One man dies every hour from this disease - thats six in the course of Soccer Saturday every week. One in eight men will get prostate cancer, and for black men, the odds are even worse at one in four.Prostate cancer is not discerning. It doesnt just hit the bad guys; its the good guys as well. Ive got friends, such as Sky Sports rugby league colleagues Bill Arthur and Eddie Hemmings, who I have known longer than I care to remember. Both are great guys who have been affected by prostate cancer and Ill be meeting more men like them along the way. Thats why Ive signed up for this challenge. Ive run marathons and climbed Kilimanjaro. There were also some nice fundraising opportunities to go and walk on the Great Wall of China or maybe go to Peru, but they sounded too much like jollies to me. I wanted to do something where people could see I was feeling the pain on behalf of a fantastic cause.Within the next 10 years, Prostate Cancer UK believes they will find the answers to make this disease something men and their loved ones no longer fear. Ive met the scientists who pledge to do this and I can see how dedicated they are. But do to this, we need to raise vital funds, and I need everyone to support me and all the men affected by prostate cancer by visiting menunitedmarch.org and pledging their support.Prostate Cancer UK is the Official Charity Partner of The Football League and 25 clubs are represented along the route, through the heartlands of England. Jeff will arrive at Burton Albion on Good Friday (March 25) and walk on to the pitch ahead of the Brewers League One clash with Oldham Athletic. I deal in statistics, but the ones we are dealing with here are shocking. One man dies every hour from this disease, thats six in the course of Soccer Saturday every week. Jeff Stelling He will also stop off at five Premier League clubs, as well as non-league side St Albans City, before an emotional finale along Wembley Way on March 30.Angela Culhane, chief executive of Prostate Cancer UK, said: Jeffs been a huge supporter of ours for many years, and has seen first hand the dangers of this disease through some of his closest friends in the business, and we are fully behind him on his epic Men United March.Walking 10 marathons in 10 days is a remarkable challenge. With each and every step, Jeff and those who support him will help us as we tackle prostate cancer head on.The power of football consistently helps us reach out to men. We are very grateful for the continued backing from Jeffs colleagues at Sky as well in allowing him to take this on.This challenge is once again a perfect example of what we call Men United; people getting together and doing something great to beat prostate cancer. On behalf of everyone affected by this disease, I say thanks, and in the words of his long-time colleague Chris Kamara, its Unbelievable Jeff.To support Jeff, and find out more about his challenge, visit menunitedmarch.org.JEFFS ROUTE Men United March route Day Date Start Midpoints Finish 1 Mon, March 21 Hartlepool United Middlesbrough Marske 2 Tue, March 22 York City Leeds Utd 3 Wed, Mar 23 Doncaster Rovers Scunthorpe Utd 4 Thu, Mar 24 Rotherham Utd Sheff Wed, Sheff Utd Chesterfield 5 Fri, Mar 25 Derby County Burton Albion, Nottingham Forest Notts County 6 Sat, Mar 26 Wolves Walsall, West Brom, Aston Villa Birmingham 7 Sun, Mar 27 Coventry City Leicester City 8 Mon, Mar 28 Northampton Town MK Dons 9 Tue, Mar 29 Luton Town St Albans Watford 10 Wed, Mar 30 AFC Wimbledon Brentford, Fulham, Chelsea, QPR Wembley Tommy Bridges Jersey . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim.

Heinie Manush Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. PARIS -- Somehow, a classic encounter between Germany and Italy is not the main attraction of the quarterfinal-stage at the European Championship.Icelands next act in what is already one of the most surprising stories in European Championship history is the match thats drawing most attention.Can the team, which surprised so many by beating England 2-1 in the round of 16, do the same to host France when they meet at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis?The island nation of just 330,000 people has undoubtedly taken the spotlight from all the others in the final eight, including Wales, which other times would be basking in its underdog status. And its overshadowed other themes, such as Cristiano Ronaldos quest for an elusive first title with Portugal.Heres a look at how the Euro 2016 drama is peaking after what most concede to have been a lackluster group stage:---MANIC MONDAYA truly memorable day in European Championship history whetted appetites for the quarterfinals.Two-time defending champion Spain lost to an Italian team thats defied its old reputation for dour, defensive play.That was just a warm-up act.Icelands 2-1 victory over England is one of the most surprising results in European Championship history. After all, as England great Gary Lineker quipped on Twitter, Iceland has more volcanoes than professional soccer players.---ICE, ICE, BABYNext up for Iceland: France in its national stadium on Sunday. Now, home fans are starting to believe their team can replicate the Euro 1984 and 1998 World Cup teams by winning on home soil.But, given what happened to England, and others, French fans will likely be a little wary now about the match that concludes the quarterfinals.Iceland, in its first appearance at the European Championship, has other achievements to brag about. The team also drew 1-1 with Portugal, daring to celebrate to the seeming annoyance of Ronaldo.Then came the late drama of Icelands last two group games against Hungary and Austria; the global discovery of national TVs hysterical match commentator; culminating in the delicious upset of England.---GERMANY CRUISINGQuietly, ominously, Germany cruised into the quarterfinals without conceding a goal.Italy coach Antonio Conte says the 2014 World Cup winner is the best team in France, which is part-truth and part-psychological.If one team can intimidate Germany, its Italy.Italys 2-1 win in a Euroo 2012 semifinal extended a tradition of German losses that includes World Cup semifinals in 2006 and 1970, and the 1982 World Cup final.ddddddddddddItaly has played two top-class teams at Euro 2016 -- Belgium and Spain -- and comfortably won both 2-0---GOLDEN YEARSIf not now, then when for Belgium?A so-called golden generation is finally shining ahead of playing a Gareth Bale-inspired Wales that is united and must not be underestimated.Belgium failed to impress at the 2014 World Cup when tamely losing a quarterfinal to Argentina, and its inhibited play in losing to Italy in the first game of the group stage looked more of the same.Since then, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne have starred in three straight wins -- the combined score, 8-0.However, how good were those opponents? Ireland, Sweden and Hungary all came through the Euro 2016 playoffs and would not have qualified under the old 16-team format.Wales need not fear Belgium in Fridays match after they advanced through the same qualifying group. Wales drew 0-0 in Brussels, then won 1-0 at home with Bale scoring.Belgium is unlikely to be short of fans. After all, the match takes place in Lille, near the Belgian border. And Hazard is a local hero, having started out his career in the city.---CRISTIANOS QUESTAt 31, this is likely Ronaldos last good chance to win a trophy with Portugal, an achievement that could propel him to another Ballon dOr over great rival Lionel Messi.Now at his seventh finals tournament, Ronaldo came closest at his first, but the Euro 2004 host lost in the final to Greece.A quarterfinal against Poland and a so-far misfiring Robert Lewandowski is an offer Portugal would surely have taken before the tournament. Belgium or Wales await the winner.---GETTING BETTEREuro 2016 picked up welcome momentum in a round of 16 spread over three days, each one having its own distinct character.Saturdays slow start slumped to a dire end; on Sunday, the big boys roughed up the underdogs; Monday peaked with two compelling dramas.The first half of the tournament was memorable mostly for the fans: A happy, noisy and friendly majority, but with nasty outbreaks of fighting and flare-throwing.The final two weeks needs to be remembered for the quality of the games and the goals.
