Harry appears to be following in Jamie's footsteps, as the former footballer started his senior career with the same team, making 13 appearances for them.

He would go to play for Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton, and also made appearances for the national team between 1995 and 1999.

Jamie's father, Harry Redknapp, also played for AFC Bournemouth between 1972 and 1976, and even managed the team for nine years after he hung his footballing boots up.
