Can we really be halfway through November already? Yes, we can - and that means the efforts of men across Britain to raise funds for, and awareness of, men’s health through the ‘Movember’ campaign is already 15 days old.

Among those on Bute who have now spent more than a fortnight carefully cultivating a ‘mo’ to be proud of is Roddie Leitch, coach of Rothesay Brandane AFC, who responded to our appeal for Movember ‘selfies’ on the island by emailing the pic above.

Roddie had raised £140 via a JustGiving page by Friday evening, and with half of the month still remaining there’s plenty of time for both Roddie’s fund-raising and his ‘tache to grow quite a bit more yet.

Whether there’s time enough for Roddie to emulate Scottish football’s best moustaches, as sported by the likes of Graeme Souness, John Wark and Willie Miller in the 1980s (ask your dad, kids), is another question entirely...
