Ex Latics star battles cancer

Ex Latics star battles cancer

Geoff Horsfield has decided to retire after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. Horsfield 34 had been training with Walsall int he hope of earning a contract.

Horsfield who had a reputation of being one of the most down to earth players in the game signed for the Latics in September 2003 and played 16 times scoring 7 goals. He left in the January transfer window to return to the midlands to be nearer his family signing for the Baggies.

Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men aged 15 to 35 but thankfully it has a high curative rate.

Another footballer to have overcome testicular cancer is the former Bolton and Everton player Alan Stubbs.

All here at Vital Latics wish Geoff all the best with his treatment .
