Villa v Fulham matchday programme: Read exclusive Delph interview

Fabian Delph is totally committed to helping Villa star in the Barclays Premier League.

And you can find out just how committed he is in the new issue of the Villa News & Record.

The programme for the Fulham game includes an exclusive interview with our tenacious midfielder, who talks at length about his time in claret and blue - and reveals the sacrifice he is willing to make for the Villa cause.

It's a fascinating interview with a player who has had more than his fair share of injury problems since joining us from Leeds, but who is now making an impact in Villa's middle ground.

Delph is also the cover star of the Fulham issue, although he shares that billing with Villa's under-19s, who returned triumphant from Lake Como after winning the NextGen Series over Easter.

Programme writer Dan Harrison accompanied the squad to Italy and you can read his account of the semi-final and final victories over Sporting Lisbon and Chelsea respectively.

And as a tribute to the youngsters' magnificent achievement, we have devoted the centrefold poster to their European glory.

But that's not the only Italian Job in this issue.

There's also a double-page spread about Peter Withe's trip to Venice and Florence as a guest of the Latin Lions.

Our 1982 European Cup hero attended the Serie A game between Fiorentina and Milan - and even re-enacted his winning goal against Bayern Munich!

Best-selling author Lee Child is also featured. Child, whose Jack Reacher thrillers have sold 70 million copies, popped into Villa Park this week to meet his all-time hero, Gordon Cowans.

Then there are regular columns from manager Paul Lambert, skipper Ron Vlaar and former Villa star Stan Collymore.

At £3, the Villa News & Record is an essential part of your match-day experience.

And for even better value, why not pick up one of our increasingly popular programme bags.

These include the current edition, three back issues and a Villa Poster Book - all for just £5.
