Boys man up with beards

A NUMBER of Nor-West Jets have decided to take advantage of their masculinity to support the Beards of Hope charity this season.

Players including Peter Richardson, Daniel Guthridge, Jye Charlton-Brennan, Louis Butler and Adam Newton have thrown the razors away to help raise money for the charity which helps families which have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal or infant loss.

Richardson is leading the way in donations, followed by Guthridge. Apparently, according to one club insider, all who are growing their beards are single too.
