A 16-YEAR-OLD Wolves ballboy who shoved Hull City assistant manager Andy Crosby to stop what he believed was time-wasting will not lose his job.

Tom Aitchison pulled the ball from Crosby’s grasp and pushed the coach in an effort to speed up the game late on at Molineux.

There had been fears the youngster would lose his job — with an online petition launched to ensure he kept it garnering nearly 4,000 signatures already — but Wolves confirmed that no such action would be taken.

The Championship leaders’ managing director Laurie Dalrymple, tweeted:
