Aston Villa Former Players Foundation is proud to introduce our next big event: a charity golf day at Aston Wood Golf Club on the Tuesday 12th June 2012.
Join Former Aston Villa Stars for a fantastic day of golf and fun in support of Aston Villa Former Players Foundation that provides essential health and welfare support to those former players who are in genuine need. For more information on the foundation, please click here.
We are extremely pleased to announce that our Old Stars match at Castle Vale FC has so far helped to raise over £8,000 for Callum's Wish Appeal.
Ten-year-old Callum Henry suffered a fatal heart attack after being involved with a collision with a car when cycling to pick up his new football kit last September. Callum's Wish Appeal aims to fulfill one of Callum's wishes: that an all-weather pitch could be installed as his school. Hopefully, his wish is close to being fulfilled.
We'd like to take this opportunity to welcome Paul Lambert into the fold at Villa Park, and wish him all the best for the next season. It's not easy to turn things around, but we are confident that Paul is the man for the job and we are extremely excited about the next season. Up the Villa!
Aston Villa Old Stars versus Forest of Dean Motor Club ended in a 2-1 victory after a great game that saw former Villa player David Norton (also General Manager at AVFPA) score two great goals. A well done to Adam Fowler of Forest of Dean Motor Club, who managed to pull one back for his team.
