Reproduced with kind permission from Joseph Gallivan, originally posted: www.portlandtimbers.com... "I grew up a mile from Villa Park. Age five I remember hearing from my backyard the roar of the Holte End when a goal went in, and the songs of 10,000 throats in a crowd of 40,000. After a match, men and boys streamed up our road heading home. They grabbed dinner at fish and chip shops, and copies of the Sports Argus, a pink paper that hit the newsstand half an hour after the final whistle." Article: A Villan In Exile In Portland...

I`ll be straight up and honest - I don`t know much about the players we saw at Worcester on Tuesday night. There was a time I would have - I`d have know my Issac Nkubi and David Curtolo from my Daniel Devine and Mason Watkins-Clark. Despite that, the promise of going to watch Villa play on a hot summer evening after work was a good one - so of I went to St. Georges Lane to take in Aston Villa`s 'Development Squad` against the first team of Worcester City, who are in the Blue Square North league.
