Jude Aston, from Wolverhampton, is up in the 'best young content creator' category in the Football Content Awards, which celebrates the best in online football media.

Highfields School student Jude, who has cerebral palsy, runs his own YouTube channel Jude's Journey, which features interviews with numerous stars including Steven Gerrard Adama Traoré, Jack Grealish, Bully, Brian Little, Matt Murray and Steve Bruce.

The 15-year-old Villa fan said he wants to prove that having a disability will not stop him from trying achieve his dream career in sports media.

He said: "I'm delighted to say I've made the final of the Football Content Awards and it would be greatly appreciated if people could vote for me!"

Last year Jude was a finalist in the Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year, which recognises young people's efforts to help those in their community.

His latest video features a Zoom interview with Villa legend Mark Bosnich, who talks about his career, his football heroes and the 1994 League Cup triumph.

The awards were due to take place last month but have been put back to a new date in November.

Visit to vote in the awards. Voting closes at midnight on June 18.
