The men’s first team striker will be dying his hair pink throughout the month of October as well as wear pink boots for what he hopes will raise awareness for a disease which affects so many lives every year.

 

“My hair will be dyed on September 30th and it will be pink for the whole of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” explained Taylor.

 

“I’ve got my pink boots already and I’ve worn them in so they’re ready for matchday. I’m looking forward to it because, as soon as someone asks me why I have pink hair, that’s my job done. It’s starting a conversation and if it can inspire one person in the stadium to do their own little bit then that’s what I’m trying to do.”

 

After dying his hair on Sunday morning, Taylor will be attending the women’s fixture where fans can get the first glimpse of his new pink haircut.

 

Bucket collections will be available on the day where fans can donate money which will all go to Cancer Research UK.

 

Manager Riteesh Mishra is proud to be involved with supporting the Go Pink campaign. “Cancer is such a horrendous disease which sadly most of us will know people who have been affected by it. We are proud to stand with the Charlton family and with Lyle Taylor to raise as much awareness and funds for Cancer Research UK” said Mishra.

 

Charlton Athletic Women take on Lewes Women at 2pm on Sunday, September 30th at The Oakwood, Crayford, DA1 4DN.  

 

Fans can donate toward Taylor’s campaign here.
