The 2014/15 season was a breakthrough one for Jack Grealish.

Grealish impressed greatly during the pre-season tour of USA before being handed the No.40 squad number.

His appearances initially were sporadic and generally confined to substitute appearances for the claret and blues.

He did start two games under Paul Lambert - the 1-0 League Cup defeat to Leyton Orient and the 2-1 FA Cup victory over Blackpool.

But it was when Tim Sherwood came in as boss that he really started to flourish.

Sherwood spoke of Grealish's quality in an early press conference and his rise to prominence began with the exciting 3-3 draw with QPR.

He was an ever-present from that moment right through until the FA Cup final against Arsenal.

Grealish had, in his early years in the academy, been considered a winger but Sherwood stressed that the 19-year-old would be utilised as a No.10 during his tenure as boss.

His skillful performances endeared him to the claret and blue faithful - as well as his lifelong love of all things Villa.

Grealish earned the young player of the season award - and received his trophy following the last-day game against Burnley in B6.

Grealish joined Villa at the age of six and his great great grandfather, Billy Garraty, was also a footballer, who earned one England cap and won the 1905 FA Cup final with the club.
