FGR striker Reece Styche kicked- off the Stroud Fringe Festival with a startling facelift in Bank Gardens this afternoon.

Team-mate Matty Taylor declined to copy his face painting pal, but was sporting stitches from the match at Kidderminster on Bank Holiday Monday.

The duo were enjoying the delights of the Fringe with fellow players James Norwood, James Rowe, George Washbourne and Saul Williams after training today.

Will Styche be scaring the Hyde defenders tomorrow with his new-look?
