WREXHAM star Ollie Palmer has become almost unrecognisable as he sports a new look for 'Movember'.

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November.

It is held to help raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.

With that in mind, Reds forward Palmer has shaved off his long-term beard to sport a new look.

He has done so to join others at Wrexham AFC who are raising money for and awareness of prostate cancer - you can donate to Palmer's cause here.


Taking to Instagram to show off his new look, he wrote: "Myself and a few of my @wrexham_afc teammates and staff are doing Movember to raise money and awareness of prostate cancer!"

The 31-year-old added: "My kids don't know me without my beard so I thought I'd video the experience. "Who are you", "What's your name", "You look rank", "I don't love you" just a few quotes!"

Fans opinions of the beardless Palmer were split.

Some said his new look 'took years off him' while others - mainly female admirers - were devastated that the facial hair had disappeared.

Meanwhile, others in the comment section of his post agreed that his new look makes him a doppelganger for Wrexham AFC co-chairman Rob McElhenney.

Palmer has very much become a fan favourite since moving to Wrexham from Wimbledon in January 2022.

He has netted 35 league goals since and become a key player for the Reds, even helping them make a long-awaited return to the English Football League at the end of last season.
