Aston Villa Academy graduate Dominic Revan is the next highly rated youngster to get a taste of competitive football away from Villa Park, and the 20-year-old centre half will spend the rest of the campaign with non-league side Weymouth.

Revan’s name has been known for the last couple of years, featuring in pre-season warm ups and from memory, getting on the bench a handful of times, but his senior debut for us was one to remember as he skippered the much changed and youthful side that faced Liverpool last week in the FA Cup.

Having come through our ranks having joined as an eight-year-old, plenty have high hopes for the lad and whilst some may question the non-league element here, I can only guess we are hedging our bets as I believe he could now be easily recalled if needed, whereas any move to a ‘professional’ club would be far more problematic.

Some nice tweets wishing him luck on the move.

This made me smile, and can’t help but agree:

Although some are questioning the destination!

And the reaction from the Weymouth manager Brian Stock.

“He’s not the tallest but he’s mobile, strong and there are a lot of things I like about him. He’s an organiser, he’s got a fantastic attitude.” He goes on to call him an out-and-out defender adding, “For Weymouth to attract a signing like that speaks volumes of where the club’s trying to get to.

Lots of the reactions on the twitter thread are spot on. It will be tough football, perhaps a baptism of fire, but it will give him a great grounding and the experience will set him up brilliantly for his future with us.

In any event, hopefully, it’ll be a good spell for him and he’ll get plenty of game time.
