The son of former professional Andy Kiwomya and nephew of ex-Ipswich and Arsenal striker Chris, who has recently been given his first manager's job at Notts County, Alex enjoyed plenty of good influence early on.
He told chelseafc.com: "I am happy for my uncle, he deserves to be where he is because he has been working really hard.
"My family really loves football and have done well in it and them giving me advice has really got me where I am now. Going out with my dad training while everyone else was having fun is paying off and I am really grateful.
"They will be watching the final. They are always watching my games."
