In 2009, the Welsh striker underwent treatment after been diagnosed with testicular cancer that spread throughout his body but finally received the all clear in December.
When asked about Hartson Fawcett said;

“We as a club would like to thank all the businesses and individuals who supported our first sportsman’s dinner, as without them, it would not of been possible.”
