Last Seen: Ending the twenty-one year wait for title glory at Harchester United. With a little help from Mr. Harchester!
Jason’s father David was a lifelong Harchester fan who recognised his son had potential. His proudest moment came when Jason, at the age of twelve, was welcomed into the club's academy by Frank Patcham.
