Cricketer Ben Stokes to get free pass to 2019 Beard of the Year shortlist

The Beard Liberation Front the informal network of beard wearers, has said that after his magnificent match winning performance in the Third Ashes Test at Headingley on Sunday England cricketer Ben Stokes is to be given a free pass to the 2019 Beard of the Year shortlist

As usual in 2019 there will be a public poll to determine the top ten beard wearers who will go through to the final Beard of the Year poll which opens on 1st December with the winner announced on 28th December.

The campaigners say that the Beard of the Year longlist comprises those whose beard has had a positive impact in the public eye during the year rather than the style or the length of the beard.

However Ben Stokes will by-pass this stage and find himself directly on the shortlist of the top 10 beard wearers of the year

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, some will say that Ben Stokes could have a different style of beard or that the beard was of no importance in his match winning performance. However Beard of the Year is all about a positive image of beards in the public eye and frankly you cant really get much more positive in that respect than Stokes over the last few days in Leeds.
