Pitch author and Aston Villa legend Kenny Swain will be at the Villa Park Club Store this Saturday, signing copies of his autobiography A Game of Three Halves between 11am and 12.30pm.

 

Fans are invited to come along and meet Kenny, who will be happy to sign copies and talk about an illustrious career which included a five-year spell with Villa.

 

A Game Of Three Halves tells the tale of the man who quit teaching to sign for Chelsea, the glamour club of the 1970s, and then moved on to Aston Villa where - having converted from striker to a full-back role - he played an integral part in winning the First Division championship and the 1982 European Cup win.

 

Next, Kenny was signed by Brian Clough at Nottingham Forest, and he now paints an evocative personal picture of the most charismatic and controversial manager in English football history.

 

Portsmouth and Crewe were the last clubs to figure in an illustrious career that saw him play more than 100 games for five different clubs. Today, Kenny works in the England set-up, heading up the FA's talent ID programme, and has helped develop players such as Michael Owen, Joe Cole and Danny Welbeck.
