Hepworth players sign up for the Full Monty; Footballers' show at Picturedrome.

Byline: By KATIE CAMPLING News Reporter

HEPWORTH footballers will getting their kit off in a Full Monty stage show, all in the name of charity.

Players from Hepworth United Football Club will bare all for PinkRibbon breast cancer charity in the daring show at Holmfirth Picturedrome on January 31.

Eight players from the club will perform a saucy stage routine based on the 1997 hit film The FullMonty, in which a group of Sheffield steelworkers strip to raise money.

Hepworth players are no strangers to stripping off for a good cause - last year they posed for shots on a naked calendar to raise pounds 900 for Cancer Research UK, specifically to raise awareness and fund treatment of testicular cancer.

The footballers braved the elements, dodged dog walkers and passing cars to have the cheeky photos taken in a variety of footballing poses on the pitch and in the locker rooms, with only a few well-placed props to protect their modesty.

But for the FullMonty show, they will not have anything to cover their blushes.

First team midfielder Matthew Earnshaw - known to team-mates as Butch - said: "Last year was a massive success with the calendar.

"After a few comments from the ladies, we decided that because it's a charity close to our hearts we would go one better and perform the Full Monty!"

The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost pounds 5. They are avai lable by calling 07921855675 or emailing
