Nicola Partridge- Contributor

Nicola first went to Villa Park when she was four, way back in the late ‘60s. Her Grandad was her football buddy, and is responsible for the claret and blue gene in our family with which she’s cursed her youngest! She’s a single and proud mother of two lads who are 18 and 20. They are all football mad.

GRC1874- Contributor

GRC1874 first went to Villa Park in 1980 and regularly from 1984. He was hooked from the first visit and has been happily addicted ever since, through all the highs and lows. Really proud to be part of this, he’s always happy to talk and listen to anyone, but far less proficient at speaking out himself!
