COWDENBEATH Football Club is joining with Andy's Man Club to highlight the help that is available for men that may be facing difficulty in their lives.

And the organisation will be guests of the Blue Brazil at their match with Stenhousemuir this coming Saturday.

The club's kitman, Colin Nelson, has been in touch with a local group and they are keen to get the word about their work strengthened in the Cowdenbeath and Lochgelly area.

The men's mental health charity offers free-to-attend talking groups for men and challenges the stigma surrounding mental health.

Colin has been speaking to the Cowden in the Community group and has got their backing for the move.

“I thought I would reach out as I noticed through social media some friends had attended Andy's Man Club and it's such a positive message they share on what is a serious issue," Colin said.

“I thought it would be right that as a community club we support that message so I reached out and offered any member of Andy's Man Club to join us for the game on Saturday.

“Through discussions, they wanted the team to wear Andy's Man Club t-shirts during the warm-up and Maurice Ross, our manager, was more than happy to allow this and help the cause.”

Added Colin: “The football club is trying hard also to gain more of a community feel and reach out to potential new fans, so by doing this collaboration it is mutually beneficial.

“It’s something I'm proud to have set up and plan to have future collaborations like this in the future. It will be great to have Andy's Man Club well-represented at the Stenhousemuir game."
