Boldmere v Villa U21: Robinson and Grealish set for pre-season opener
Callum Robinson, Jack Grealish, Janoi Donacien and Daniel Johnson are all set for action in tonight's development squad fixture against Boldmere St Michaels.
Gordon Cowans has included the quartet in a 22-man squad to face The Mikes at The Trevor Brown Memorial Ground this evening.
The fixture has become a traditional part of the pre-season campaign for our development squad.
Twelve months ago, the young claret and blues side earned a 6-3 victory in an entertaining contest.
Grealish, Jerell Sellars, Thomas Strain  and Daniel O'Brien scored the goals on that occasion, with Jimmy Mutton, Josh Riley and Kirk Smith notching for the hosts.
After taking on the Midland League Premier Division outfit, Villa's development squad continue their pre-season preparations with a clash against Conference North side Boston United at the Jakemans Stadium on Saturday [3pm].
They then face Northern Premier League club Rushall Olympic at Dales Lane on Thursday July 31 [7pm].
Tonight's game kicks off at 7.30pm. Entry is £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and free for U12s.
