Some Aston Villa fans on social media have been going crazy over Louie Barry after he hit a hat-trick in the FA Youth Cup.
On the same day that ex-Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham made a mark in the Champions League, Villa’s brightest young talent was showing why he could be the next big thing to come out of the Second City.
Barry netted three, including a fabulous free-kick, against Burton in a fantastic 9-0 win for the U18s, and as you can imagine, such an emphatic victory had Villa fans talking.
Aaron Ramsey was one player who got a lot of praise, but it was the hat-trick hero who was the centre of attention on social media.
Somewhat understandably, some fans called for him to get a chance in the first-team, and with Villa seemingly settled in mid-table in the Premier League, Dean Smith may not get many better opportunities to unleash the youngster.
Here’s what the Villa Park faithful have been saying on social media…
Future looks bright
