Villa v QPR: Snap up specially-designed matchday programme

Archie Hall will be a proud kid today as his design features on the cover of the matchday programme, showing conclusively that dreams can come true via the power of football.

Archie was one of over two hundred children who entered our special art competition, asking young supporters to show their artistry skills with a classy cover.

The 10-year-old's handiwork was picked out by Gabby Agbonlahor - and our designers got to work on the special edition Acorns edition soon after the decision by our speedy star.

The finished article can be seen above and we think you'll agree, it looks fantastic.

Pick up a copy this afternoon, with issues being sold all around the ground.

Remember, that £1 from the £4 price goes straight to our official charity partner.

There are plenty of other reasons for snapping up a copy, not least the exclusive edition with Agbonlahor.

Agbonlahor talks at length about his special anniversary in the latest issue of the Villa News & Record - and that's not all. There's much, much more from the goal hero.

He also chats about the club's charity partner - and how he selected the cover for our special edition.

Christian Benteke, meanwhile, scored Villa's 1,000th Premier League goal at Reading and we take a look at the team's other Premier landmark goals over the past 20 years.

There's also a centrefold poster of Brad Guzan in the Kidzone section, while older supporters will enjoy an appreciation of Jimmy Dugdale - the Laughing Cavalier - in My Favourite Villan.

Then we have regular columns by manager Paul Lambert, skipper Ron Vlaar and former Villa star Stan Collymore, plus a look at the 2006-07 season - when Stiliyan Petrov became Martin O'Neill's first major signing.

You can snap up the QPR edition. Or why not pick up one of our popular five-for-a-fiver bags?

These include the Acorns Day special edition, a £3 poster book, two QPR back issues and one from the 1980-81 League Championship-winning campaign.

Programmes from the recent games against Newcastle, West Ham and Manchester City will also be on sale at £3 each.

Arrow BulletIt's also worth noting that all the runners-up entries in the cover programme competition will be on display today in the Indoor Academy at the family fun day.
