Trevor Francis’ Son Arrested for Burglary At Former Villa Star Lee Hendrie’s House (Yes, Really)

By Alan Duffy

Trev, James and Lee: A story of fatherly love, riches and intrigue. And burglary.

That’s a headline you thought you’d never see, eh! Well, according to a number of newspapers, the 24-year-old James Francis is indeed in big trouble after allegedly breaking in to former Aston Villa schemer Lee Hendrie’s £1.7million house.

Hendrie, who never quite made the most of his talent in my (not so) humble opinion, is currently a team-mate of Francis at Conference side Kidderminster Harriers. However, in an act which won’t have done much for team spirit at the club, Francis reportedly broke into Hendrie’s Warwichsire mansion. For what reason, we do not know.

Francis Junior is the son of Britain’s first £1million footballer, Trevor Francis, a European Cup winner with Nottingham Forest and a superb striker who also plied his trade in Serie A with Sampdoria and Atalanta, before eventually managing QPR and Crystal Palace amongst others. Trevor now works as a slightly annoying TV pundit.

(James) Francis was arrested by West Midlands police and is due back in court on January 11.

    I think the most baffling part about this story is that Lee Hendrie can afford a £1.7 million house…

  2. Solihull United says:

    what a lad!

  3. SH says:

    James Francis has never played for Kidderminster Harriers and definitely not a team-mate of Hendrie!

  4. Alan Duffy says:

    @SH, the plot thickens!! Practically every report in the newspapers stated that he played for Kidderminster and was a team-mate of Hendrie’s but I take your word for it!

  5. Col says:

    A true One-Cap-Wonder if there ever was one.

  6. BallsDeep says:
