GYMPIE Devils have played in pink for breast cancer, but tomorrow they will play in yellow for men’s health.

The Devils have commissioned special yellow jerseys for their clash against Nambour on the Call to Arms Charity Day and will auction them after the game.

Gympie Devils spokesperson Joanne Dodt said the yellow jerseys will be donned in an effort to raise money and awareness for men’s cancer.

“One in two men will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85,” Dodt said.

“It could be you or your best mate,” she said.

A percentage of the profits from the jersey auction will be donated to Call to Arms.

The Devils have a huge day of league at Jack Stokes planned.

Starting with the first ever Devils’ women’s team clash against Cherbourg at 2pm.

The women will be followed by the under 18 Devils and the A Grade will run on after the reserve grade game.
