An 11 year old boy from Manchester has been sent home on his first day of high school over a 'severe' Sergio Aguero style haircut. Garry Hill also got into bother over his 'trainer' shoes.

The Manchester City fan was pulled up by a teacher at, Astley Sports College in Dukinfield, about the two shaved lines on his hair - just like the striker. After being told he'd have to go home the boy's dad Garry snr, 45, drove to school and spoke to the headteacher.

“I was told the haircut was unacceptable. I said I would take him home and shave out the lines. But then I was told his shoes were unacceptable. I told them I had bought them from Trespass from their back-to-school range.”

Headteacher, Eamonn Murphy told the MEN: “These are the rules and parents know them.”

The school’s website makes it clear hair with ‘steps’ or ‘tramlines’ aren’t acceptable and nor are black shoes with velcro straps instead of laces.
