Quick and strong and has a keen eye for goal
Joe Hardy was raised on the Wirral and has been educated in the City Academy through the age groups.
Deployed as a striker or on the right wing, Joe is quick and strong and has a keen eye for goal in either position.
He made his debut for the U18s away at Stoke while still part of the U16s group, and marked the occasion in memorable style with a poacher’s goal – one of three appearances he made for Jason Wilcox’s side as part of a competitive league squad.
The forward has long since proved his abilities to shine against those older than himself after being selected in the U15 Canon Lion City Cup squad in 2012 as a 13-year-old, and grabbing a goal against Singapore.
Joe signed a two year scholarship deal with the club in July 2015.
