Jaden - described as a "City mad fan" by his family - plays for Bristol City Academy's Under-10s team as a striker and a winger.

He started playing football at the age of five and was spotted by a scout for the academy months later. At the age of nine, he was signed by the academy and has been a ball boy ever since.

His mother Laura Neale said: "He just stands out there in the cold and wet,through the good times and the bad times.

"To do it last night was amazing. He is a City mad fan. We go to every homegame."

Ms Neale was also at Ashton Gate for the match and could see Jaden in his ball boy position.

"Once they scored at the end, everybody just stood up so I didn't see LeeJohnson pick him up," she said.

The family were unaware of the pictures and videos of Johnson picking up Jaden until they returned home later.

"It was just amazing to see," Ms Neale added.

To see Jaden's face - it just made his day. He has been waiting for weeks and weeks to be ball boy at this game. It is definitely a moment to remember."
