Good luck to him, if he holds his own there he'll be nudging the U23s in year or so.

I'm looking forward to watching Cam soon.
Early days this season but I think the second years are maybe not as good as the first years so it may be a tough season at U18 level.
Only seen the home game against Chelsea so far, and they dominate youth football, but we seem pretty good defensively with not a lot of threat going forward, so I can see a route into the youth team for Cam if he is as good as his record suggests.

We lost our first home game of the season to Chelsea at Bodymore a couple of weeks ago.  This is no surprise and it makes judging our lads very difficult against a Team who had about 85% possession and where the game was played almost exclusively in our half.

But we held out very well and there were some outstanding performances from some of our lads.
Boucher is a very good Keeper and looks the part.
The two centre backs who are both first years (so only 16 years old) were outstanding. Ethan Patterson and Dominic Revan won everything that came their way and there was a lot of crosses etc to deal with.  Revan played regularly at the end of last season as an U16 and looks to have a very bright future.
Best forward on view for us was Jacob Ramsey, very skillful indeed.

A couple of questions - Can the public watch the games at BMH? I ask because I have read elsewhere that the public are not allowed to watch U23 games there.

Is there a website/webpage showing fixtures?

You used to be able to watch the games without a problem but now you have to be on a list.  It is fairly easy to get on the list but it does mean a visit to Villa Park and showing proof of your address etc.
They only check the list if the games are being played at the back and you need to go through the security gates.
Last week against Chelsea the game was played right by the Car Park so anyone could get in to see it. 
The fixtures should be on the website but most U23 games are held at Villa Park or Bescott and entrance is free to season ticket holders or a couple of quid if you haven't got a season ticket.

I've never had a problem with watching Cam play on the bottom or middle pitches. The barn and the top pitches have more stringent security.

Brum Mail:

1-0 (Cox, 13)

Villa take the lead and itís a lovely goal to break the deadlock.

It all started with Doyle-Hayes who exchanged passes with OíHare.

Cox then charged forward and let rip from outside the box, superbly curling into the bottom corner past McCarthy.
