Suits you Alan! Edwards wins official Villa Flannels suit


Season ticket holder Alan Edwards enjoyed a day to remember this week - as he received a smart new suit from Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Flannels, our official formal wear supplier, offered the fantastic prize to official website visitors - and Alan was successful.

Alan - along with daughter Jennifer - visited the training ground, Bodymoor Heath, for a full tour before being handed the perfect prize by our ace stopper.

Brad also presented thrilled Alan with a signed football - and was joined for the presentation by Martin Brelsford of Flannels.

Alan told us: "The suit is absolute top-quality and a perfect fit. I love it so much, I bought myself another for work!

"Visiting Bodymoor Heath with my daughter Jennifer was a real bonus too. The players and staff made us so welcome.

"The signed ball will be put to good use too. I have donated it to Pathways, which is a Lichfield-based charity supporting victims of domestic violence.

"I am so thankful to Flannels and Villa for this unexpected bit of good luck."

There's no doubt Alan was a worthy winner when you consider his devotion to the claret and blues.

Alan and Jennifer have been season ticket holders in the Doug Ellis Stand for over 20 years.

They also own a paver with the inscription: "The Edwards Family - four generations of loyalty' - a reference to Alan's father and grandfather who were season ticket holders before him.

Martin Brelsford, of Flannels, added: "We are very pleased to be an official partner to Villa, as this gives us a great opportunity to forge new relations with fellow business partners and fans alike - and to be part of the 'Villa business community'.

"On behalf of The Flannels Group, it was a pleasure to be able to present an official Villa club suit to a long-term and keen supporter such as Alan, who I am sure will wear it with great pride!"
