"If we can get a captive audience saying this is how and why you check, and at the same time raise a bit of money then let's do it."

Despite United falling to a 2-1 defeat, Blades manager Nigel Adkins praised the initiative.

"Well done to the football club," said Adkins, who opted for a pink tie to mark the occasion.

"It's a fantastic charity.

"Everybody has come out and made a great effort, it's just a shame we didn't get the result to finish off a good day."
