EFL clubs send best wishes to former goalkeeper turned coach diagnosed with cancer

EFL clubs send their best wishes and support to former goalkeeper turned coach Lewis Price who has been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

The 38-year-old joined Milton Keynes Dons as part of Liam Manning’s coaching staff a year ago, however will now step away from his role to undergo treatment.

On Saturday, Ethan Robson was seen celebrating his goal by running to the bench to celebrate with Price during the 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley on Saturday.


MK Dons can confirm Goalkeeper Coach Lewis Price is currently battling testicular cancer.

Lewis, 38, will soon undergo a course of treatment, which will keep him away from the Football Club for a period of time.

Head Coach Liam Manning, Sporting Director Liam Sweeting and Performance Director Simon Crampton have issued the following message: “The full support of everybody at the Football Club is with Lewis and his family and we will do everything we can to help them through this challenging time.

“Lewis will have all the time he needs to recover and work his way back to a stage of full health, and we, as a Club, will do everything we can to help with that.

“I know the MK Dons family will be right behind Lewis throughout his recovery but we ask that during this time, everyone respects his and his family’s privacy.”

Get well soon, Pricey. We are all with you!
