Jason Euell to go pink in support of Lyle Taylor’s Cancer Research UK campaign

Charlton U23s boss Jason Euell is set to spray a strip of pink into his hair on Tuesday, to show his support for Lyle Taylor’s Go Pink campaign. 

Addicks forward Taylor is raising funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK by donning a pink haircut and pink football boots for the entirety of October.

October is breast cancer awareness month and when Charlton host Oxford United on Tuesday night the match is being dedicated to Taylor’s cause. 

Fans are being encouraged to wear pink and that night’s edition of Valley Review – the club’s official matchday programme – will also be adopting a pink look, with 50p of every copy sold being donated to Cancer Research UK. 

Euell will be one of those going pink for the night.

“It’s for a good cause,” Euell said. “When you have someone at our club who is flying that flag and doing what he is doing for his own personal reasons, other people can attach themselves for their own reasons, like myself. 

“It’s about how we can all spread the awareness. Most people might think it is just one day that I’m spraying some pink into my hair but that can go a long way for people who are fighting that cause every day. 

“If I can help just in any small way possible to get the awareness out there for cancer charities or other charities then I’m all for it.  

“I wanted to support Lyle with what he is doing and everyone else associated with Charlton, football and everyday life.”
