Going to have to come up with a new phrase for the U21s really as youngsters seems to apply to every level within Villa thesedays!

Their pre season campaign kicked off with a game against Enfield today, and Stiliyan Petrov made his first appearance in the dug out alongside Gordon Cowans after accepting his new position as assistant U21 coach.

All 18 players got pitch time and Villa took the game, 2-0, thanks to goals from Daniel Johnson (72) and Jerell Sellars (85).


Siegrist, Lyden, Donacien, Bateman, O’Brien, Cowans, Johnson, Calder, Grealish, Drennan, Robinson.


Wildin, Sellars, Toner, Zazrivec, Watkins, T Strain, Abdo.

If I can find sub times I’ll update.

Gordon Cowans told the Official Site.

‘Enfield were a lot bigger and physically stronger than us but we dominated the game. We should have been about four up by half time and we deserved to win. It was a very good workout and they did very well.’

The U21s are back in action next Wednesday against Boldmere St Michaels – KO 7.45pm.
