LIKE father, like son.

Jordan Milligan is clearly a chip off the old block, the Blackpool youngster following in the footsteps of dad Jamie and proving a hit on the footie pitch.

And after scoring in the Under-13s’ Hogan Cup final for YMCA at Bloomfield Road, Milligan made a fine gesture to a friend.

The 13-year-old raised his top to reveal a shirt bearing the words “RIP Luke”, in memory of Luke Rutter, a talented footballer and big Blackpool fan who died last year at the age of 15.

“I just wanted to show that we are all still thinking of Luke,” said Jordan. “And with him being a huge Blackpool fan, I hope he would have been proud that his mate scored at Bloomfield Road and wore a T-shirt in his honour.”
