Spurs star Harry Kane shoots into Beard of Spring poll lead
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that Spurs star Harry Kane has shot into an unexpected lead in the Beard of Spring poll.
He now leads SDLP leader Colum Eastwood and British Ambassador to the EU Sir Tim Barrow.
The on-line poll is now open and the winner will be revealed on Easter Sunday.
The campaigners say the Beard of Spring is not about beard style or length but about the impact the beard wearer has made in the public eye.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, some may say that Harry Kane’s beard is far from a classic style but what we are looking for he is positive impact in the public eye and there is no question the Spurs striker has that.
