The KUMB West Ham Podcast has been nominated as Podcast of the Year in the 2015 Football Supporters' Federation awards.

The Knees up Mother Brown Podcast, hosted by Chris Scull and James Longman has been named on a shortlist of six by the FSF, who are hosting this year's awards in association with bookmakers WIlliam Hill.

Now in its fourth season, the KUMB Podcast will do battle with The Anfield Wrap, The Football Ramble, Football Weekly, Graham Hunter's Big Interview and The Tuesday Club with Alan Davies for the award.

Kevin Miles, Chief Executive of the Football Supporters' Federation, said: "The FSF Awards give fans the chance to have their say on the best in the game.

"Which player has lit up the game in the past year? Which writer, pundit or paper adds the most to your understanding of football? Fans are the professional game's bedrock and we'd like you all to have your say in deciding who gets the nod."

And Alex O'Shaughnessy, Chief Marketing Officer at William Hill, added: "The FSF Awards is unique amongst the big football awards because it's the fans who decide the winners. And we're delighted to be associated with this celebration of everything good in the game."
