With the Football League announcement that vanishing spray would be introduced to the Championship, League One and League Two from the first of January, as well as the remaining rounds of the domestic Cup fixtures, the first appearances of the intelligent shaving foam will have been seen in fixtures so far this year.

The spray has been used to good effect in the Premier League and in this season’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, although you would’ve expected more faux par’s from referee’s applying it as they haven’t nearly covered themselves or a set piece taker often enough yet by misjudging the wind or even which way the nozzle has been pointed.

The change has come following positive feedback from clubs, referees and even supporters and could be an interesting development in future especially with more players sporting beards these days.
