John Hartson has revealed that his son scored a hat-trick against Liverpool for Swansea’s u-15 side.
The Welshman never played for his hometown club but clearly has high hopes that his name may soon be on the white shirt of the Welsh side.

Hartson Senior had to leave Swansea for Luton to start his career and was quickly snapped up by Arsenal.
Spells at West Ham, Wimbledon and Coventry followed before he made the move to Celtic where he was a key figure in Martin O’Neill’s success story.
Since quitting the game Hartson has carved out a successful career in the media and recently returned to Scotland and is coaching Livingston’s strikers one day a week.
If his son has inherited many of his dad’s attributes he’ll soon be making his mark in the senior game and pulling on the Welsh jersey that his dad took so much pride in.
