Campaigners confirm Gareth Southgate will be on Beard of the Year shortlist

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, that campaigns on prejudice against the hirsute, has confirmed that England football manager Gareth Southgate will feature on the Beard of the Year shortlist. It is unveiled at the end of November after a public vote on the shortlist with the winner announced at the end of December.

The campaigners say that Gareth Southgate’s beard will receive an automatic pass through to the shortlist

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, there has been a lot of talk about the waistcoat but the reality is that Gareth Southgate’s beard demonstrates both empathy and solidarity. We expect the England football Manager will be a serious contender in the Beard of the Year vote.
