"Seeing that shirt hanging up in the dressing room was enough for me! What a day! Up the Villa!"

"Like fine wine, this event gets better every year. Thanks (Sean Khodabaccus)"

"What a fantastic experience. Every fans dream. I've a million and one memories. Thanks for everything!"

"As I came down that tunnel, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck. Fantastic day! (Phil Clements)"

Daniel Antonowicz was captain for the home team in game 1 and Kevin Jackson was captain for the away team. Game 2's captains were Thomas Murphy (home) and Mark Fraser (away). Kevin ends by saying:

"It was my second time of playing at Villa Park through Football Aid, and I must say that even though it was a brilliant experience two years ago, last Saturday was even better. In my case, as a teacher, the excitement of playing is shared amongst colleagues, students and family members and all can take part in the day and be aware of your charity, and this is a major positive for your charity.

Many, many thanks for giving me the opportunity to play at the club which I love. The memories of the day are just fantastic. I will definitely be paying to play again in the future!"
