Aston Villa: Fans react to Barrow gesture

Aston Villa: Fans react to Barrow gesture -Aston Villa

Aston Villa donated their share of the gate receipts from Tuesday’s Carabao Cup tie back to Barrow, the League Two side confirmed.

And, as to be expected, a number of Villa supporters heaped praise on their club for their generosity on social media.

Dean Smith’s side brushed aside The Bluebirds on the pitch 6-0, with youngster Cameron Archer scoring a hat-trick on his first start.

Who will prove to be Villa's best big-money signing?







Anwar El Ghazi netted twice and Frederic Guilbert also scored at Holker Street in front of a crowd of 5,349 – the highest attendance at the stadium for 30 years.

Villa, who will now face Chelsea in the next round, were due 45% of the gate money from the second-round tie but decided to donate that back to the home side.
