Just as last year, it’ll the be the first-team squad coming from Villa Park – with their full-strength line-up being cut in half to face both Harriers and AFC Telford United.
Also joining us will be League One side Burton Albion who’ll bring their first-team squad, while West Bromwich Albion and Birmingham City will visit with XI sides featuring both first team U23 players.
