Get well soon Jonas – and Check ‘Em Lads!

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Sad news last week that Jonas Gutierrez has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He’s a very popular figure among Newcastle United fans and everyone at the Football Supporters’ Federation wishes him a full and speedy recovery.

NUFC fanzine True Faith is associated to the FSF and editor Michael Martin popped us an email pointing out that it’s a good time to remind every man and boy reading this to follow the advice of the Check ‘ Em Lads testicular cancer awareness charity (which is run by a Newcastle United supporter who survived the disease).

So Check ‘Em Lads!
