New Academy Manager appointed

Aston Villa is delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Harrison as the club’s Academy Manager. 

Mark joins the club from West Bromwich Albion, with whom he held a similar role for over a decade, helping to develop the club’s young academy talent. 

CEO Christian Purslow said: “Aston Villa is a football club steeped in a rich tradition of producing its own players. 

“Mark’s appointment is another cornerstone of the process and journey that we set out upon last summer. 

“As a football club, we want a clear pathway right through the academy to the first-team with outstanding recruitment and development. 

“I have every confidence that Mark, working closely with Dean Smith and Jesus Garcia Pitarch, will build an excellent academy that will be able to nurture the next generation of stars to entertain the crowds at Villa Park.”
