That must be what Emment Kapengwe, Freddie Mwila, Oscar and Hector Arce did. WON a chance to play on the Villa Park pitch. Man, that question has worried me for years. How the hell did they make it onto the hallowed VP playing surface? Now I know.

I've 'appeared' on the famous VP pitch twice, once for Aston Boys vs Erdington and Saltley, once in a BB Cup Final. Great experience, memories remain, even though both occasions were back in the 60's.
