  • Neville Williams: Back in 2006, I rarely did photo sessions of players training but thankfully Martin O’Neill agreed to my request to snap away during Petrov’s first time at Bodymoor Heath.

  • Neville Williams: Stan was always a proud captain of Villa and someone who took his job as skipper very seriously. Here he screams to the skies after a missed shot, typical of a man who demanded so much from his own performances.Photo 3 of 11

  • Neville Williams: This was Stan’s final game and he was already feeling unwell before his leukaemia diagnosis. But, as usual, he was dishing out the orders.Photo 11 of 11
