Aston Villa youngster Harry McKirdy has today made the loan switch out to League Two Crewe Alexandra.

The 20 year old attacker was with Stoke City until the age of 14 and then he made the switch to Villa and has progressed well through our youth ranks, finding himself on the scoresheet a number of times this season for Kevin MacDonald’s Under 23 side.

Last season he spent the first half of the campaign out with Stevenage where he made his professional bow, starting seven times with a further six showings from the bench. He found the net twice whilst with them in League Two but unfortunately that spell was cut short with injury.

Heading to Crewe now for the second half of the campaign he’ll hopefully hit the ground running and build on his goal tally.

He could debut for them this weekend when they host Wycombe Wanderers and Gresty Road.

It is a rare thing on the Vital Network that we push a charity appeal, mainly because there are so many worthy charities out there and so many worthy people that every other article would be an appeal. So we usually focus on Football Aid as an obvious charity partner to back.

However, this young man, Moin Younis, touched the heart of a nation at the Pride of Britain awards and is football through and through. So here, if you have just a few minutes, we would love you to read this appeal and if you can, donate a few pounds. If you are a big company or have any contacts, we`d be delighted if you could open the vaults and help Moin all you can. says:

The Mo Fund aims to kick start the process of funding a pioneering treatment for Moin Younis, winner of the Teen of Courage award at the 2017 Pride of Britain Awards and proud ambassador for the Acorns Children’s Hospice, Birmingham. If Moin is accepted to receive the treatment, only available in Austria, he will need in the region of £250,000 to fund the treatment and enable a life which can facilitate his travel to and from the UK.

Having been diagnosed with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) when he was just two months old, he was told he would not live past one year. Mo is now 18. He will never fully heal, or be cured, but with this fund we might be able to get him the treatment that can make his life easier and less painful.

This new approach – a full body graft of genetically modified stem cells – is the most ambitious attempt yet to treat the condition. Other children who were accepted, have received this treatment and seen dramatic improvements to their lives.

And here is a great video of Mo meeting David Beckham:

And meeting the future King of England…

As a football community, lets get our wallets out and bring the young lad the relief he so desperately needs and deserves. Donations here:
