Gareth Southgate beards Michael Gove in Beard of Autumn shortlist


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the shortlist for the Beard of Autumn 2016 announced today is the most diverse ever for one of the quarterly seasonal contests.

The first England football manager with a beard Gareth Southgate could be set to beard former Tory Minister Michael Gove who appeared in public with a beard during August.

The BLF says that Gove may have recently shaved his beard but the quarterly award is all about capturing those who were hirsute during a certain period of the year without being consistently bearded.

The Beard of Autumn is the last seasonal Award of the year, with the Beard of the Year voted on in December.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Beard of Autumn is about beards but particularly its about great beards making a significant and positive impact in the public eye.

The poll is open now and will close at midday on 20th October with the winner announced on Friday 21st October
