When Harry Jacobs wrote a speculative letter to Swansea City's Jonjo Shelvey in the hope that the footballer might visit his school he probably wasn't expecting too much of a response.
Like the former Charlton midfielder, young Harry has Alopecia Totallis, a condition that means the pair both lost their hair at an early age.
