Aston Villa Academy graduate Louie Barry had long been tipped as one of the next best things, and there was certainly some surprise when we took advantage of a bit of homesickness and brought him back to the Midlands from Barcelona, and he showed everyone what he could do as he made his debut for us in the very youthful FA Cup tie with Liverpool back in January 2021.

A poor loan (for a variety of reasons) with Ipswich Town in the first half of the 2021/22 campaign, got a lot better as he made the January switch to Swindon Town. 14 starts and two substitute showings later, he had chipped in with six goals in their league campaign and helped them through to the League Two Play Off route.

We picked him up a level again in 2022/23 and he headed out to League One side MK Dons. To date, he’s made eleven starting appearances for them, with a further nine showings from the substitutes bench and having chipped in with his first assist in their clash in October with Plymouth Argyle, this weekend he picked up his first goal in the game against Derby County – and it will be a very familiar type of goal for Villans.

Dons fans seem to like the effort he puts in, even if they rightly think there is more to come from him, so hopefully that goal will do his confidence at a new level (which it has to be considered as given his lack of game time at Ipswich previously) the world of good and he’ll start having a similar success in front of the net as he did at Swindon.
