On the 30th of March 2012, we received the news that our club captain and personal friend, Stiliyan Petrov was diagnosed with Leukaemia.
As you can imagine the news came as a massive shock, not only to us all at Aston Villa, but also to his friends, his fans, the entire football community and most importantly of all, his family.
As masseurs for AVFC, we've grown to know and love Stan over the past 5 years and boy has he kept us busy during that time. We miss him in our little bat cave and we, like so many others, want him back as soon as possible.
Stan has always been there for myself and Andrew and we will always be grateful for everything he has done for us and as a small token of our appreciation we have decided to embark on a cycle between Stan's previous club Celtic and Aston Villa to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
The cycle took place in September starting at Celtic Park on the 3rd and finishing at Villa park via several stop offs along the way.
Your support means the world to him during his fight against Leukaemia.
