Joe Hardy joined the Liverpool Academy from Brentford in January 2020.
The Wirral-born striker played his youth football with Manchester City before a switch to Brentford in 2017, where he scored 40 goals in 80 appearances for the club’s B team.
Recruited to provide extra competition to the Reds striking ranks at U23 level, Hardy made his debut for the side as a substitute against City.
He would go on to score seven goals in just two months before the Academy season was unfortunately curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hardy would also make his first-team debut in February when he appeared as a substitute in the FA Cup victory over Shrewsbury Town at Anfield.
The forward signed a new contract with the club in June 2020.
