So after going 52 games without a goal, Tom Huddlestone eventually scored in Hull City’s 6-0 thrashing of Fulham the other week.
This prompted the big English midfielder to cut his hair after pledging to let it grow until he scored his next goal, raising over £50,000 in charity donations as part of the JustGiving campaign ‘Huddlefro’.
However, that amount has now skyrocketed and could go well into the £60,000 mark after one Hull fan managed to get a hold of his trimmed hair – and sell it on eBay for a massive £6,300!

It is not known how the fan managed to get hold of the 27-year-olds hair, which was cut by one of the Tiger’s physios after his goal against the Cottagers.
But the supporter did the right thing after selling it on the bidding site, where 114 bids were made, with all proceeds going towards Huddlestone’s charity.
The fan’s description that Huddlestone’s hair is, “fluffy” and had, “one previous owner” was particularly comical.
