Trevor Francis was one of the finest English strikers of the seventies and eighties, winning the 1979 European Cup with Nottingham Forest and leading the Detroit Express to first place in the NASL’s American Conference Central Division in 1978 (roughly equal achievements, really). His son is allegedly a criminal who steals from other pro footballers.

Lee Hendrie’s career may not have quite the pedigree of Francis’s, but the midfielder spent twelve quality years at Aston Villa, playing over 250 league games before bouncing around the lower leagues for a few years.

James Francis had no career as a professional footballer, but the 24 year old is the son of legend Trevor and has been charged with breaking into a cottage on the grounds of Hendrie’s home in the midlands, where he allegedly walked off with the following items:

  • Golf clubs
  • Roberto Cavalli boots
  • Designer sunglasses
  • A Versace watch
  • Gucci boots
  • Dolce and Gabbana boots
  • A jewellery box containing costume jewellery
  • Six souvenir football shirts

If he is a thief, he’s a thief with good taste. And a sense of loyalty, as he robbed a former Villa favorite and his father broke through at Birmingham City.
