Huddlestone gets haircut for charity

Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone has had a first haircut since 2011 after ending his 32-month goal drought.

Huddlestone's strike in the 6-0 win over Fulham on Boxing Day was his first since April 2011.

After a goal for Tottenham in a 3-3 draw with Arsenal in 2011, he was dared not to cut his hair until he scored again to raise money for charity.

"We've raised over £35,000, which has nearly trebled since the final whistle against Fulham," Huddlestone said.

"It's been a long time coming but thankfully I managed to hit the target at the weekend.

"A few of the lads suggested I go for a 'Mr T' look but I'm not going quite that bad."

The midfielder, who joined the Tigers from Spurs in the summer, has now scored 10 league goals in 265 appearances since making his debut for Derby in 2003.
