Rusty was born December 20th 2013 - after discussing possible ways to raise funds and awareness for the Bears of Hope Charity amongst fellow players and good mates at The Nor West Jets Football Club.

What started as a bit of a fun soon became an exciting time in facial hair around the club. What we achieved last year was nothing short of amazing and something we all have become proud of.

Being the Dad to two amazing daughters it has made me cherish every moment with them as time is precious and it's sad that some parents don't get that experience.

Rusty has persisted after two shaves and now is a regular feature of my face. I hope to continue to support and help raise awareness for this wonderful charity.
