Wembley date for TV presenter Jake, aged 14

Sheffield United will not be there, but 14-year-old Sheffield student Joseph Hadfield will be part of TV coverage of the FA Cup Final on May 17.

He won BT Sport’s first Young FA Cup Presenter of the Year Competition and will spend the big day behind-the-scenes with the BT Sport production crew and filming an interview with presenter Jake Humphrey, which will be shown as part of the coverage.

Jake gave him the news in a surprise visit to his school, Yewlands Technology College, where teachers had arranged a special assembly.

Joseph entered the competition by uploading a clip of himself presenting a match report to YouTube.

He said: “I’m gobsmacked! I stepped into the school hall, saw my headteacher and then out popped Jake Humphrey. I can’t wait to get to Wembley.”

The teenager added: “It’s my ambition to be a football presenter.”
