Aston Manor 6th Form Football Academy is run in conjunction with Aston Villa FC for the 2019 academic year. The group started their journey with Aston Villa with a selection of team and individual photographs at Villa Park. Students were then given a tour of the ground including a visit to the home dressing room. 20 students, studying a range of BTECs and A Levels have joined the programme for 2019/20 and the season begins on September 18th with a home fixture against Sheffield United. Training is already well underway and the coaches have been very impressed with the group so far.
