Video: Tom Huddlestone finally has haircut after breaking 32-month goal drought

Posted by Chris Wright

Following a close-ish scare against Liverpool at the beginning of December in which the Dubious Goals Committee stepped in and (quite rightly, as it happens) decreed that slicing a horribly mis-hit shot in via Martin Skrtel's face should really only constitute an own-goal, Tom Huddlestone finally broke his epic 32-month goal drought by nabbing Hull City's fourth in their 6-0 evisceration of Fulham last weekend.

Huddlestone last scored a senior competitive goal while playing for Tottenham against Arsenal back in April of 2011, and had vowed not to trim his tresses until he scored next -- donating money to charity with every game he went without troubling the scoresheet.

Fifty-five fallow games later, the midfielder drilled home at the KC Stadium on Dec. 28 to break his duck, therefore meaning he was finally able to hire a pair of shears and attempt to prune his gigantic, bedraggled, two-and-a-half-year 'do -- which he did at Hull's training ground on Thursday...

He looks like a new man, quite literally in fact -- a completely different human being!

It should also be noted that, to date, Huddlestone has successfully raised a little over £48,500 for Cancer Research with the sum still rising thanks to donations from people buying up his shorn hair to insulate their barns and cathedrals and such like.
