Aston Villa Ladies have had a busy day.  Thery've renamed themselves Aston Villa Women and have signed three new players, including a German International Marisa Ewers who was plying her trade in the other lot across the city...

]lhttps://www.avfc.co.uk/News/2019/07/04/aston-villa-women-three-major-signings] (http://lhttps://www.avfc.co.uk/News/2019/07/04/aston-villa-women-three-major-signings)

That, coupled with a commitment by Christian Purslow to put extra funding into the Womens team to me is a statement of intent.   The target appears to be promotion to the top division.

Not sure where else to put it but Suliman, Clarke, Doyle-Hayes, Ramsey, O'Hare and Hepburn-Murphy are all training with the first team at the moment and will probably get a chance during pre-season. I'm pretty happy with that, I really hope Clarke in particular takes this chance because I think he could become a very good player.

So after being denied access to watch the youth team on a Saturday morning they have now switched the reserve games to Bodymore so we can't watch them either. 
I know I am in a small minority that follows the second and third Teams but some of us enjoy seeing the young players trying to make the grade and I am pissed off tonight with this latest snub from the Club.  I didn't see this one coming I will admit.

He seems to be at the point where, ability wise, he's right between the U18s and U23s (he's done well in some games for the U23s but has looked a bit naive for them a few times as well) which bodes well give his age. Hopefully him and Ramsey (as effectively 9 and 10) can both establish themselves with the U23 team this year and push each other along.

Aston Villa have beaten a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, to secure Nigerian defender Iffy Udanoh, according to reports from his homeland. The 16-year-old is highly rated in Nigeria and is expected to be called up to the U17 side in the coming days. He also holds an American passport and is eligible to play for England.
 
Along with Liverpool - West Ham and Wolves both gave a trial to the 6ft4 defender who has been likened to Virgil van Dijk.  In total, it is claimed eight Premier League clubs were keen on Udanoh, before he signed with Villa. He was previously playing for non-league, London based side Erith & Belvedere before making the switch to Villa's youth set up. Udanoh will be part of the U18 side on B6 as he looks to impress on his initial deal.

Good to read that we were the preferred destination for a young player that is highly thought of. With how these owners (and therefore downwards) place such an emphasis on young players, I really expect our youth teams to be amongst the best over the coming years.

On a side note, and apologies if this has been mentioned before, but  the official site and social media channels seem to be fairly limited when it comes to reserve/youth team coverage. Appreciate there was a first team game on the same night, but havenít seen a single mention of this at all.

That's my biggest complaint about the official site, they just don't provide anything like enough coverage of anything below the first team. The worst thing is, I can get al lthe match details and stats I want about the first team all over the internet in far better quality so I hardly ever use the site because where it should have an advantage of keeping fans up to date on the youth teams and getting people familiar with the kids they instead post fluff about it being the birthday of someone who played for us 20 years ago.

I like to keep a eye on the reserves and youth teams but the club make it hard .Their lack of coverage is shocking.I did not even know until just now that the reserves played and lost at Stoke on Monday .I also noticed on the team sheet against Norwich reserves the other week that the reserves are due to play some reserve games at 7pm of a Monday night at Bodymoor Heath .If you dont drive you have no chance of watching the game

It's cause and effect. Our reserves have never been particularly well-attended; I can remember a few hundred of us dotted around the top of the old Witton Lane when other clubs were doing Family Fun Nights and getting almost as many as watched their first teams. That said, though, it must be doubly frustrating for anyone who does like to watch the junior teams to have such a diabolical lack of information.

Couldn't be bothered to start a new thread for this, but do we not have any sort of "Old Stars" team at all, any more?

I was idly wondering if I could add to my number of grounds visited by watching them and researched it. None of Villa Old Stars, Former Players' Association or "Lions and Legends" have Tweeted in the last couple of years.

I know they had fallen out but thought that there might be at least one team still playing somewhere. If not, maybe someone could raise this at the next club meeting? It seems good for players' mental health to still be able to play and they also raised a lot of money for good causes.

Oh, and for anyone interested, it seems that all, or at least most, of Villa Ladies games are available free via the FA Player app which you can download to your phone.

Aaron Ramsey is our representative in the Guardian's pick of next-gen talents.  Previous years have featured James Finnerty and Easah Suliman

16/01/2020 at the training ground. At the minute the club's policy is to turn fans away if they try to attend youth or reserve team games at Bodymoor Heath.
