Villa v Liverpool match programme: Lowton exclusive in Reds issue

Barclays Premier League football is back on the Villa Park agenda this weekend - and so is the Villa News & Record.

The new-look programme for the match against Liverpool in one you shouldn't be without.

And if you weren't here for the recently friendly against Malaga, there will also be a limited number of copies of that programme available for supporters who want to make sure of a full set of this season's issues.

Our programme for the Liverpool match is one which is sure to delight supporters.

We've changed the shape slightly this season but the price has been pegged at £3 for the fifth consecutive year - and the 76-page publication is packed with interesting material and superb photos.

This one includes an exclusive, in-depth interview with Matt Lowton, who was agonisingly close to being a Barclays Premier League ever-present in his debut campaign with Villa.

Matt looks back at his first 12 months with the club and also reveals why is excited about a long-term future in claret and blue.

There's also a welcome to our summer signings, plus a chat with Gabby Agbonlahor and a centrefold poster of Andi Weimann as part of our Kidzone section.

We have also introduced a number of new features for 2013-14.

Six of the Best is a look at half-a-dozen Villa greats from the Premier League era, from midfielders to managers, from debuts to dramatic finales, kicking off against Liverpool with six stand-out goalkeepers.

Current keeper Brad Guzan is the first in another new series called What's in a Name? - a quirky double-page spread in which we use the initials of players' names to reveal all sorts of facts about them.

There's also Villan on the Spot, a Q & A with former players about their time in claret and blue, with European Cup hero Tony Morley the first to be put on the spot.

And Fabian Delph comes up with some entertaining answers in another new feature, The Last Word.

Check out the last film Fabian watched - and how he feels about changing nappies!

Throw in columns by manager Paul Lambert, skipper Ron Vlaar and former Villa striker Stan Collymore, and we think you will agree the new-look Villa News & Record is a winner.

The Malaga back issue, meanwhile, costs £2 and includes a centrefold poster of our star striker Christian Benteke, a chat with our Belgian striker and a three-page review of the 2012-13 campaign.

You pick up both Liverpool and Malaga for a fiver - and we'll give you a programme bag in which to keep them.

The Villa News & Record is an essential part of your match-day experience, but for those supporters who can't get to every game, we offer a subscription service at £66 for the season, including postage.

European postage costs an additional £39 and worldwide postage an extra £64.

Subscribers will receive a free Villa cap, worth £10, and you will also be entered into a draw to win a signed home shirt. For details, call 0845 0001 or email
