Tom Huddlestone: Growing ‘Fro A Cause

Spurs midfielder Tom Huddlestone has had a lot of time on his hands since his ongoing ankle injury started acting up again. But don’t be thinking he’s wasting it playing FIFA, pimping out his wheels and falling out of clubs like most footballers do.

Tom made a pledge back in October that he wasn’t going to cut his hair until he scored another goal, and in the process was hoping to raise £75,000 for Cancer Research UK. A couple of days ago he tweeted a four month update, and as you can see, his ‘fro is coming along nicely.

We can only hope that he is taking management advice from Benoit Assou-Ekotto (left). Tom is currently recovering from ankle surgery and it could be several months before his fitness allows him to get anywhere near the goal. By that point, the sheer weight of his ‘fro could have become a problem.

    It needs to be so big that it becomes a balancing act for him when he plays, and for headers the ball gets lost.
