Villa's Head Groundsman Brings Home The Prem Award


Congratulations to Villa's Head Groundsman, Jonathan Calderwood, who has picked up the Premier League Groundsman of the Year Award.

I'm sure the last few seasons this was won by the Arsenal groundsman, so great to grab it for Villa Park which lets be honest, has been supreme this season and most of the previous ones.

Top news!

The official site will no doubt carry some quotes later, I'll update here or link to that when done.
