Know the Score
Know the Score and Help Tackle Bowel Cancer
England’s top footballers from past and present have come together to raise awareness of bowel cancer.
Current England midfielder James Milner has pledged his support to the campaign along with World Cup winner Martin Peters, women’s captain Faye White and former striker Les Ferdinand.
The ‘Know the Score’ campaign is being backed by several leading bowel cancer charities who want to raise awareness of key symptoms.
“I am pleased to support the ‘Know The Score’ campaign in order to help promote the awareness of bowel cancer. I hope the campaign and the launch of the badge helps to highlight that bowel cancer affects people of all ages and I encourage people to see a doctor at the first sign of any symptoms.”

Leading charities supporting ‘Know the Score’ include the Bobby Moore Fund, the Adam Stansfield Foundation, Beating Bowel Cancer, Bowel Cancer UK , the Men’s Health Forum and the founding charity of ‘Know the Score’, the Mr Brightside Project.
The campaign is also being supported by the League Managers Association (LMA), Professional Footballers Association (PFA) and Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).
The role of the PFA Coaching Department is to prepare its members for a secondary career within the professional game, possibly within coaching or management.
