Liverpool have recruited Jamie Carragher’s young son to their Academy.
In a move that is sure to delight the Reds faithful, the Kop icon’s little boy is now playing for the under 8s, and enjoyed his first training session with the club last Thursday.
"On Thursday night we signed up our latest U8 players and Kenny Dalglish and Jay Spearing came along to welcome them,” said Liverpool Academy chief Frank McParland.
"Jamie Carragher was also in attendance as we have just recruited his son to play here.
"I'm sure supporters would love the idea of another Carra coming through the ranks. He is here on merit and Jamie was keen to avoid any special treatment for himself at the signing. He was here with his wife and they both remained in the background alongside all of the other proud parents."
With Jamie one of the all-time greats to pull on a Liverpool jersey, the Carragher family’s affiliation with the Anfield club could be set to continue for many more years to come.
Carragher has made 661 appearances for Liverpool in a distinguished Anfield career.
