Huddlestone scores a win for Cancer Research


After scoring for Tottenham in 2011 Tom Huddlestone accepted a challenge to raisemoney for charity by not getting another haircut until he scored again. Little did heknow he was heading for a 32-month goal drought and when he finally hit the net atthe end of December he had raised 55,000 for Cancer Research UK, more donationspoured in once word of his challenge hit the news and the total is well on its way tothe 75,000 target. While physio Rob Price gave him an impromptu snip on the pitch,Tom arranged for a proper and well-deserved haircut back at the KC Stadium. Infull view of the watching media, Toms very patient barber Lance Lowe travelled upfrom London to tackle nearly three years of untrimmed afro and soon returned thepremiership star to his former well-groomed self. Although for a while he thoughtthe challenge was a jinx on his usual goal-scoring prowess, he has no regrets and isgrateful to all the players and supporters who have donated money to such a worthycause. Toms hope is that other footballers will take up this challenge and that withhis new haircut; hell again discover his scoring boots. You can still donate
