'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Vital Villa Member The Ultimate Fan

Vital Villa member Randy.Stand has taken a phone call today that has him jumping for joy!

The Villa youngster entered a competition in the News of the World recently where he had to write 300 words on why he is the ultimate fan. Today he got a call from Duncan Riddle at Villa informing him he has won and get this for a prize:

At the Everton match on Sunday 23 September, he'll have breakfast and a briefing with General Charles Krulak in the Corner Flag restaurant.
Next up he has an interview with Jack Woodward in the tunnel. Ok, we can move swiftly on from that part!
He will then enjoy dinner with the CEO Richard Fitzgerald and owner Randy Lerner, plus other directors.
Then he'll see the game from the press box with Jack Woodward and Tony Morley doing commentary. (Just in throwing distance of me Randy, so please save me some prawns!)
Then after the game he'll meet the players and Martin O'Neill.

Now that is what I call a prize!

Randy.Stand explained: 'I read it in the NOTW a few weeks back and went onto the website and every premiership club has a prize for it and you had to explain in no more than 300 words why you are the ultimate villa fan. I never in the world thought I would win and I can't believe I have!! Come on!

Well done R.S, we'll expect a full run down of your day naturally!

YatesyVillain i will spell this slowly as i know you cant read quickly. T h r e e h u n d r e d w o r d s. I must admit spelling has always let me down, but not as often as villa must let you down. Cant wait till we get to villa park and bring all your fans banging down to earth. You never know you might even be able to sell out your stadium, but i doubt it.
