0 Aston Villa Carling Cup Final: Why life's a pitch for Villa fan Eddie

He's the only Villa fan in the world who is happy that he will be working during next Sunday's Carling Cup final.

For Villa fanatic Eddie Mills carries responsibility for making sure his heroes run out on to a tip-top pitch at Wembley.

The 39-year-old is among the cream of the country's turf technicians who will preen the hallowed grass at the famous stadium and ensure it is prepared for the footballing spectacle.

A Claret and Blue army of thousands will head south for the club's first domestic final in ten years. But Villa die-hard Eddie, from Northfield, says he'll be the most excited.

"Being involved in the Carling Cup final is fantastic and so exciting, especially as it's my heroes who will be running out onto the pitch," he said.
