Steven Pressley: Has released youngsters

The quartet, all Academy graduates, have been deemed surplus to requirements by boss Steven Pressley having failed to make an impact this season, with only centre-back Henderson managing two first-team appearances, both of which came in September before the Scot's arrival.

Pressley said: "I feel that Shaun, Will, Josh and Joe are at a point in their career where they should be really pushing for first-team football.

"It's a difficult decision to let any player go but we will do all we can to help them in their future careers.

"From the club's point of view, it's massively important to me that we continue to develop our own and ensure that our younger players are staking a claim for a place in the first team on a regular basis."

The quartet join Richard Wood, Jordan Stewart, Stephen Elliott, Nathan Cameron and Danny Philliskirk, each of whom were released at the end of April.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
