Monaghan footballers to shave or dye for worthy causes


By John Harrington

Lockdown has changed different people in different ways, but few have been as transformed as much as Monaghan defender Drew Wylie.

Every barber-shop in the country is shut, and Wylie decided to let nature take its course with spectacular results rather than attempt a DIY hair-cut.

As you can see from the photo above this article, the result is that he’s currently looking like the Farney county’s answer to Wolverine from the X-men.

Change is on the way though. Depending on your perspective, things are about to get better or much worse for Wylie and his impressive head of hair.

Which full-back would scare full-forwards more? Drew Wylie or Wolverine?

The Monaghan GAA senior footballers and management have decided to shave or die their hair this week in aid of two very worthy charities – Cancer Services in Monaghan and The Holy Family Special School in Cootehill which caters for pupils with learning disabilities and/or autism.

If you’d like to see Drew Wylie back to his trademark clean-shaven crew-cut look then visit the Monaghan Twitter account and vote for 'shave'.

Of course, there’s also the option that his brother Ryan has pushed strongly for on Twitter today – voting for 'dye' to transform Drew into Monaghan’s answer to former Portuguese professional footballer, Abel Xavier, who was partial to dramatic peroxoide hair-dos.

Xavier was a fine footballer who had stints with the likes of Benfica and Liverpool, but he was no Drew Wylie.
