Club to pay tribute to Jody O'Reilly at Crystal Palace game

The Club extends its sincerest condolences to the O'Reilly family and to Jody's many friends following this tragic loss of life in the hours leading up to our game against Manchester United.

Jody had tickets for the game and in the three years since he first came over from Ireland - having selected his university course in 2010 so he could be as close as possible to Villa Park - he had become a regular attender at Villa games.

We will be holding a minute's applause prior to kick-off against Crystal Palace on Boxing Day in respect of his passing and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
