Hull City’s Tom Huddlestone ended his goal drought that saw him unable to score a goal in over 50 matches as his side played against Fulham some weeks ago and the midfielder fulfilled his promise as he invited the hair stylist Lance Lowe to cut his hair and helped raise over €36,000 for Cancer Research with some of it being auctioned on Ebay and the bids even reached €3,450.

“I had a couple of requests on Twitter for a Mr T mohican but have decided not to go as drastic as that. It is a big moment and one we want to do properly,” he said.

Tom Huddlestone’s capabilities have seen almost securing a spot in Fabio Capello’s England XI but an ankle ligament injury saw him going through reconstructive surgery and 18 months out of the playing fields which eventually left him unable to snatch a place in the main squad of England some years ago and the English midfielder recently spoke about what it was like playing in Tottenham with Villas-Boas where he felt that his chances of playing were very limited.

“I didn’t get a fair crack of the whip last season. I played games where results were good and I felt my performances were good, then I’d find myself out of the team for six or seven weeks with no explanation’’.

“I know people go on about my injuries but I was fit and available most of last year. In my first few seasons down there the policy was to build around young British players like me, Aaron Lennon, Gareth Bale , Michael Dawson and Jermaine Jenas but now most of us have left and Spurs have gone very much down the continental route.” The English midfielder said.
