Carlos Corberán and Dara O’Shea joined members of the local media in supporting Football Shirt Friday at the head coach’s pre-Sunderland press conference.

The boss donned a 1978 Albion home jersey to give his backing to the campaign, which aims to raise awareness of - and help tackle - bowel cancer, in memory of legendary England World Cup winning captain Bobby Moore OBE.

Those in attendance, as well as anybody taking part across the country, have been encouraged to donate £5 to Cancer Research through the Bobby Moore Fund.

Baggies fans can get involved by wearing their favourite shirt, sharing a selfie on social media and donating to the campaign here.

What is the Bobby Moore Fund?

Shortly after Bobby Moore sadly passed away of bowel cancer in 1993, aged only 51, his widow Stephanie Moore OBE set up the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

Thanks to the generosity of supporters, they have raised more than £29m in and seen mortality rates for bowel cancer fall by over 30 per cent.

However, with 46 people still losing their life to the disease every day in the UK, there is still a long way to go. Only through further research will we find better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose and treat bowel cancer.
