What a wonderful feel-good story!
Gambia’s biggest Aston Villa fan, Kevin.
He was introduced to the mighty claret & blue by holiday-makers Jeanette and David White and has now taken his support to the next level, setting up a foundation for the kids in his area.
As featured on BBC Sport:
This guy loves Aston Villa FC so much he renamed his street! ⚽️

Love how he’s named his street Villa Street. Total quality.
Jeanette mentions the foundation in her interview, hopefully, that’s the Aston Villa Foundation and they can look to supply the kids with a bit more kit and equipment. I am sure they will, this is right up their (Villa) street the way they are building a foundation for us all to be truly proud of.
Well done to Dave and Jeanette for taking the time and effort to supply some kit for these folks. Let’s hope they can now get a bit of help (if they haven’t already) from Aston Villa. As they say, it would be lovely one day for Kevin to be able to come over and witness a game at the home of the football league. Villa Park.
