Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar and defender Enda Stevens helped to launch the latest application phase of the Premier League Players’ Kit Scheme when they visited local school Streetly Academy to hand over the free football kit to the U13 girls’ side.

Through the Players’ Kit Scheme the squads of all 20 Barclays Premier League clubs donated £25,000 to the Scheme to create a £500,000 fund.

The fund provide schools, clubs and youth organisations in England and Wales with a full set of strips and training equipment, and aims to particularly benefit teams from areas that need the most help.

Ron Vlaar said: “This is a great scheme. We donated the kit to the girls at Streetly Academy, and you know it’s something great because you see how happy everyone is."
