The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that iconic Welsh football star Joe Ledley has shaved Iceland’s Aron Gunnarsson and Andy Murray to win the coveted Beard of Summer Award in an on-line poll.

Ledley took 48% of the vote in the on-line poll, winning many hundreds of votes, while Gunnarsson was the runner up on 36%. Andy Murray came third on 8%

The Award is the culmination of Beard Week 2016

Ledley, who plays for Crystal Palace, won the Beard of Wales Award earlier in the year and has now achieved the further accolade of Beard of Summer after his beard power helped Wales to progress to the semi-finals of the European Championships on Friday.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Joe Ledley’s beard is sweeping all before it at the moment
