A former England international who had spells with Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley is set to appear alongside another ex-pro to aid a worthy charitable cause.

Ex-World Cup stars Viv Anderson and Terry Butcher will appear at the Copthorne Hotel at Bramall Lane in Sheffield on Janaury 27 to chat football and to promote their charity bike ride challenge for the Men United campaign to tackling prostate cancer.

Before their training starts in earnest, Anderson and Butcher will be giving their opinions to BBC sports journalist Damian Johnson, discussing their cycling prowess and the England squad they’d take to Euro 2016 in France.

Both men are set to take part in a gruelling two-day 145 mile cycling challenge for to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

Anderson joins the Football to Amsterdam peloton for the first time at the inaugural northern leg of the charity ride, starting at the home of Barnsley FC, a club he also took charge of in a player-manager role.

Viv said: “When I was invited to do the ride, I thought 145 miles is a long way but I realised with the right bike and a bit of training it was very much achievable.

“When I heard Butch was going, and about the cause I was ready to sign for my new team, Men United.”
