Let the 'Huddlefro' grow!

Tom Huddlestone has decided to grow his hair – all in aid of charity.

Tom Huddlestone has decided to grow his hair and insists he will not stop until he next finds the net – all in aid of charity.

The midfielder recently set himself the challenge but was met with a voice of doubt from one of his friends that he would actually see it through.

So by committing himself to raising money for Cancer Research UK, Tom has all the inspiration he needs to steer clear of the barber shop until he is back on the scoresheet.

And now he is calling on your support!

Tom aims to raise £75,000 for a charity close to his heart and is hoping fans will help him reach his target.

You can donate at Tom’s JustGiving page, .

He said: “I’d been thinking about growing my hair for some time and when I told one of my friends that I would do so until I scored my next goal, he didn’t believe me!

“So doing something for charity at the same time gives me a clear reason to do this and I am determined to see it through.

“I have lost family members to cancer so it is a charity I strongly believe in. Any way fans can help me raise money would be greatly appreciated.”

We will keep you updated on the progress of Tom’s new ‘fro’ as the growth continues…

The 24-year-old is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, so you have time to get behind the cause before Tom is back in action and the clippers threaten to make a re-appearance!
