New Villa Book Gets Royal Approval

Press Release: August 18, 2015

Aston Villa fan, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, recently was delighted to receive his copy of the new book 'Just 14'. Andy Dale's semi-fictional take on a 14-year old following his beloved Aston Villa in amazing their title winning 1980/81 season. A season when incredibly they used just 14 players.

The book is selling fast with Villa fans and general football fans. Villa legend Gary Shaw and sport's broadcaster Tony Butler are all full of praise for a book full of both football and 1981 memories. Mentions of Buck Fizz girl's skirts, the tragic shooting of John Lennon and 'Gregory's Girl' makes this much more than just a football book.

Prince William is bound to have been interested in the part about his parents announcing their engagement.

Hopefully in years to come he can use 'Just 14' to teach Prince George about the history of his famous football team.
