Hull City midfielder Tom Huddelstone ended a long-running goal drought on Saturday, and he couldn't wait to cut his hair.

Following his last goal in April 2011, Huddelstone vowed not to cut his hair until he scored while he also set up a charity page designed to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

Hull were 4-0 up by the 68th minute at the KC Stadium when the ex-Tottenham Hotspur player netted the fourth goal in Hull's 6-0 thumping of Fulham.

And to celebrate, a member of Hull backroom staff chopped off a fairly big chunk of Huddelstone's massive hair.

By way of a bonus, it was a birthday goal for the midfielder who turned 26 on Saturday.

Huddelstone told Sky Sports: "The celebration has been sorted since the end of last season at Spurs.

"It's a chance to try different hairstyles again rather than leaving it as it is."

Donations to Cancer Research UK can still be made through Huddelstone's JustGiving page here:
