Radio Sport broadcaster Martin Devlin has fathered a Messi-like prodigy.

His son, Charlie Devlin, scored an absolute screamer for Sacred Heart College during his side's knockout cup final in Auckland's 15s grade at Bill McKinlay Park on the weekend.

Devlin slotted a left foot pearler into the top right to tie the scores late in the game.

Unfortunately, his side would go on to lose against Mt Albert Grammar on penalties.
