Thanks for this guys. Has he ever been out on the pitch?
Some people have earned the Holte in full voice just before kick off singing "There's only one..."

I've had so much happen this year I've not got to a game in ages, but wouldn't want to miss that.

Dusty on this side of the pond as well.
Very dusty in Canada too.

An inspiration to us all, what an amazing young man.

As well as being such a great lad, I was impressed with how he speaks.

No dust here. But I’m cutting some very strong onions which is affecting my eyes.

He was the absolute highlight of the show. An incredible human being and amazing humour in what must be horrific pain.

I’d have as much admiration whatever football club he supported. Some things are bigger than the game. But the fact he’s one of ours makes me proud.

Aston Villa players have donated £20,000 towards pioneering treatment for a fan with a rare skin disorder.

Moin Younis, 18, from Birmingham, has epidermolysis bullosa which causes his skin to tear and blister at the slightest touch.

There is currently no cure but Moin and his family are trying to raise £250,000 so he can take part in a new clinical trial in Austria.

If fans match the £20,000, the club says it will donate a further £20,000.

Moin's condition is so severe that every morning he goes through an excruciating skin care routine that can last up to six hours.

Aston Villa said Gabby Agbonlahor has helped get the players to raise money for The Moin Younis Fund.

The teenager won Pride of Britain's Teenager of Courage award last year.

The club said he also works them, in particular, The Aston Villa Foundation for good causes.

"Should Villa supporters match the £20,000 raised by the players, chief executive Keith Wyness has promised the club will also contribute that figure to the fund - meaning £60,000 would be donated in total," the club said.

It added: "As a gesture of goodwill, we now hope that between the club, its players and supporters that we can play a significant role in helping Moin on the way to a better quality of life."

Aston Villa players have combined to submit a generous donation of £20,000 to The Moin Younis Fund, and now the club wants your help in matching their contribution.

Led by role model and close friend of Moin, Gabby Agbonlahor, the squad have chipped in to help raise funds for Pride of Britain's Teenager of Courage winner.

The Fund has set a target of generating £250,000 via Moin's JustGiving page.

Moin, who experts said was lucky to reach his first birthday after being born with epidermolysis bullosa, has recently celebrated turning 18.

And a pioneering scientific breakthrough has now been made, meaning sufferers can enjoy an improved quality of life.


To assist in giving him this life changing chance, the club are urging supporters to help Moin in reaching his donation target.

Should Villa supporters match the £20,000 raised by the players, Chief Executive Keith Wyness has promised the club will also contribute that figure to The Fund – meaning £60,000 would be donated in total.

Click here to donate to The Moin Younis Fund via his JustGiving page.

Moin continues to show bravery and work closely with Aston Villa and, in particular, The Aston Villa Foundation for good causes and promoting the ‘Supporting Our Own’ corporate social responsibility strategy.

Just this month he assisted in the latest Supporting Our Own initiative searching for 'Community Most Valuable Players', recognising unsung heroes from all walks of life who make a positive contribution to their local community and inspire others.

As a gesture of goodwill, we now hope that between the club, its players and supporters that we can play a significant role in helping Moin on the way to a better quality of life.
