Thats an impressive figure that they've raised, £3½ million. They dont receive a lot of media attention for their work, so all credit to each and every one of the lads. Typical Villans - Top Men!

Glensider do you remember Alan O'neil? He made his debut against Small Heath in 1960 at Villa Park. He scored with his first Kick after 28seconds, we went on to beat Small Heath 6-2 We got him from Sunderland and his nick name was The cod Liver Oil Kid

Yes, I remember Alan O'Neill, inside right. Another old timer we were talking about the other evening was the late Willie Hamilton, I bet you remember him 50 years a villan? Very clever footballer.

We could talk for hours I think 50 years a villan, bringing back the memories, discussing the bad times as well as the good. Well, they've all been good times really. Even the old third division days hold a lot of great, never to be forgotten memories.
