Jack Grealish’s CALVES Calendar is flying off the shelves for Christmas
While Jack Grealish may have impressed football fans with his tactical prowess during the European Championship, some members of the crowd seemed more taken with his looks than his performance on the pitch.
And his loyal fan base is just as enamored with the footballer as it was in July, with an entire calendar devoted to his impressive calf muscles flying off the shelves before Christmas.
The 12-page calendar, entitled ‘Wonderful World of Jack Grealish’s Calves’, has been put together by the UK’s self-proclaimed ‘dullest man’ Kevin Beresford, 69, of Redditch.
Grandfather of two Kevin’s latest calendar features a series of close-ups of the Manchester City footballer’s calves, with his torso and feet completely cut out.

Kevin has created some of the UK’s most outlandish calendars, from roundabouts around the world to his best Welsh letterboxes and his latest project – ‘Benches of Redditch’, which lovingly depicts 12 benches in and around the West Midlands.
The retired painter, who previously printed a Peter Crouch calendar with his head off, has already seen hundreds of sales from his new release – despite printing only one calendar to date.
He said, “The Jack Grealish calendars are flying off the shelves. I’ve sold about 400 copies so far; the women can’t get enough of it.
“There are also a lot of guys who bought the calendar, I think it’s for a Christmas present for their girlfriends.

“In fact, I think Jack Grealish’s sister bought one, as I know her name is Jo, and we’ve received an order under that name.
“It would be funny to think he’d get a calendar full of his own calves for Christmas. It’s definitely one of my most popular calendars to date.”

“I’ve focused on his calves because they’re a feature you recognize right away. His calves are colossal.
He still wears shin guards from his childhood out of superstition and always rolls his socks down.
“If the question came up in a quiz, even if you don’t like football, everyone would know who they were.
“I’m pretty sure even Jack Grealish himself has said that large calves run in the family.”

Despite its popularity, Kevin has received some criticism for his quirky calendar, with some critics saying it’s “disgusting” to have an entire calendar full of calves.
Despite its popularity, Kevin has had some backlash on his quirky calendar.
He said: ‘I got a message from a woman that it was disgusting to have a calendar full of calves.
“I even had a wife complain to me that she had just received the Jack Grealish Unofficial 2022 calendar when she wanted one of his calves.
“I had to explain to her that she never ordered from me because I only do the calf calendar, it would be funny if I surpassed the Calendar Club and their calendar.

‘The place where I’m going to have them printed is a bit tired of all the orders I’m passing on now. When I call to place an order, the receptionist usually just sighs at me.’
He added: “It’s definitely a bit of a controversial calendar, but it’s all about the fun of it.
‘I see myself as an artist and all my calendars are unique. My work ends up on people’s walls, just like a painting.’
