‘Stelling’s March To The Arch’ on Sky After Football

Ashton Gate’s Sports Bar & Grill will be showing Liverpool’s match with Chelsea (8pm) live on the largest pub screen in UK tonight.

In addition, the Barclays Premier League encounter between Sunderland and Everton (7.45pm), where the hosts will relegate Newcastle United and Norwich City with victory, will also be broadcast.

Following the live matches (10.30pm), a special documentary premieres on Sky Sports 1 reflecting on Gillette Soccer Saturday presenter Jeff Stelling’s intrepid walk for Prostate Cancer UK.

‘Stelling’s March to the Arch’ relives the 61-year-old’s epic walk from his beloved Hartlepool United’s Victoria Park to Wembley.

The distance was an equivalent of ten walking marathons in ten days from 21st to 30th March 2016 and helped raise more than £365,000 for the leading men’s health organisation.

The phenomenal funds raised through the March will help fund vital research projects such as Professor Johann De Bono's at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, whose teams have been developing a genetic test for aggressive prostate cancer to help assess which men will respond best to a certain treatment.

Stelling said: “Ignoring prostate cancer won’t beat it, and I was proud to join the fight during the recent Men United March, ten days I will never forget.

“There were highs and lows, tears and triumphs; but being able to raise an amazing amount of awareness about this disease, not to mention more than £365,000, is incredible.

“My feet may have been hurting but that paled into insignificance given what many men and their families experience through prostate cancer.

“I’ve met some of those men and heard stories that are heart-breaking but inspiring too. I’ve also met the scientists who pledge to find those answers and I can see how dedicated they are. But to do this we still need to raise vital funds.

“The walk may be finished but people can still support all the men affected by prostate cancer by visiting menunitedmarch.org and pledging their support. And if you’re still unconvinced, I’d urge people to tune in and watch the documentary and join the fight against this dreadful disease.”
