The Championship: Jackson's Five

31 January 2014

As the January transfer window reaches its enthralling climax, Prostate Cancer UK, the Official Charity Partner of The Football League, asked Charlton Athletic's Johnnie Jackson to do a spot of scouting for Men United.

They asked the Addicks captain to look out for men of substance, determination and strength - the characteristics needed in a team fighting a deadly enemy.

He's the longest serving player on the Charlton roster, Jackson was delighted to become the latest high-profile recruit for Men United.

The talented midfielder, closing in on 150 appearances at The Valley, joined Addicks boss Chris Powell in backing Prostate Cancer UK's quest to combat the killer disease.

"The more aware we can make people to stand up and take note of a really serous issue, the better," Jackson said.

"As players and role models we can make a difference and after seeing some of the statistics, like the fact one in eight men are likely to suffer from prostate cancer, I wanted to help.

"It's a fantastic charity and I'm delighted to join the fight and help raise awareness."

A Championship stalwart in the last two seasons in SE7, the midfielder knows a fair bit about the second tier and he offers an exclusive insight into a quintet of key performers in the division.
