Liverpool prospect Tyrell Belford has revealed his family has an Aston Villa background.

The 16 year-old goalkeeper is part of Liverpool's FA Youth Cup's push this season.

"My Dad was at Aston Villa as a young lad," he told liverpoolfc.tv.

"He featured in their reserves but never for the first team. He went on to play for Notts County and then won the FA Vase with non-league side, Tamworth.

"He's really proud to have played at Wembley and won a trophy there. I'd love to start my career by getting into that winning habit. It'd be nice to do that in this year's FA Youth Cup."
