You've probably heard of the "Calendar Girls"- well now Dagenham and Redbridge football club has its own Calendar Boys!
Players from the team have agreed to bare all in a special calendar to try and raise awareness about testicular cancer.
It's being launched during testicular cancer week, which runs from 1- 7th of April.
The hope is that it will help encourage men – and their partners- to check for the disease regularly.
The man behind the idea is Tim Baggs, who is marketing manager of Dagenham charity DABD.
He wants to raise £75,000 at least for cancer charities in the capital.
Club Captain Anwar Uddin explained why they agreed to get involved:
“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."
It's thought testicular cancer affects around 2 thousand men in the UK every year.
The A3 21-month calendar, running right through to December 2009, costs £7.50. To order your copy visit www.dabd.org.uk
