Latics man honoured

Men United Hall of Fame place for Broadbent

Latics' Sales and Marketing Executive David Broadbent has been inducted into the Men United Hall of Fame.

It is Prostate Cancer UK's way of recognising his work is helping their charity.

They say it is going to be a tough one to beat for other Football League club employees looking to enter the Men United Hall of Fame.

Prostate Cancer UK say at the start of the 2012/13 season David (pictured) and the Latics' Chairman Simon Corney approached them about sponsoring the back of Latics' home and away shirts to help raise awareness of a disease that had affected two club directors in the past.

A statement read: "What they didn't tell us about was how Latics were going to end up on television in not just the FA Cup fourth round against Liverpool, but also two games against Everton in the fifth round.

"Twitter went crazy for a bit of Prostate Cancer UK action on Oldham's shirts last season."

If that wasn't enough David arranged for Prostate Cancer UK to hold two bucket collections at Football League matches during the season raising over £800 and also signed up to run the 2012 Virgin London Marathon raising over £2,700.

Prostate Cancer UK continued: "So Football League club employees, what are you waiting for?

"Get involved like David did and join the Men United Hall of Fame before someone else beats you to it."
