Derby County stars buzzing as we hit Movember's end
THESE hairy pictures show in the lengths some Derby County players went to in the name of fund-raising.
Shaun Barker and Frank Fielding were among nine Rams stars who joined the legions of men growing their facial hair for Movember.
And tomorrow faces will once again be fuzz-free as the annual event draws to a close.
Movember sees men across the world agree to grow a moustache for the month to raise cash for research into prostate and testicular cancer.

Defender Shaun said: "I think Movember is popular because lads are willing to have a bit of banter with one another, and the chance to look an idiot without repercussions from the other half.
"It's also a chance to have facial hair without the fear of ridicule.
"Who will have a pop at your moustache if you're doing it for a good cause?
"In fact it's for a great cause and the lads have all been raising awareness for men's health, and it's fantastic to have quite a few of the lads taking part."
And keeper Frank Fielding said: "This is the longest mine has ever been and I'm just happy to be supporting a great cause.
"It's created something of a talking point over the last few weeks and we're more than happy to support Movember and get involved to help raise some awareness, and it's great the fans have got involved too."
Derby-born Skins actor Jack O'Connell joined staff and students at Derby College who have grown a host of moustaches and beards for Movember.
Jack, whose father John died aged 52 from cancer, visited the college's Sensi hair and beauty salon at the Roundhouse, where barbering student Joe Frayne trimmed his moustache to mark the end of event.
And Derby Telegraph readers have also been sending in their photographs and stories of fund-raising for Movember.
Derby High School caretaker Darren Richardson, 44, said: "I've had leukaemia in the past and I thought I would do the challenge this year to help a very good cancer charity. At the moment, I've raised about £233, and I'm chuffed to bits about it."
Staff at the Royal Mail centre in Derby have also joined in the fun.
Neil Atkins said: "We are aiming to raise around £600 for the charity – which Royal Mail will match pound for pound – which will give us a grand total of £1,200.
"I want to thanks everyone for their hard work to raise this fantastic total."
