Foot­ballers’ hair is rel­e­gated to the past

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Foot­ball Years, the TV show that last week high­lighted the fab­u­lous Dons and Dundee United teams of 1982/83, prompted an in­ter­est­ing re­sponse from a non-foot­ball fan friend. It re­lated not to my cameo as an old codger who re­ported on Alex Fer­gu­son, pic­tured, and Jim McLean’s won­der­ful sides, but to the fact that she hadn’t spot­ted any bald play­ers in any of the ac­tion. “Why is it”, she asked, “that there are so many young, baldy foot­ball play­ers around to­day?” Does any­one have a

the­ory on that?
