Jack Grealish dreamed of scoring for Villa against Birmingham and he finally did it and hes not the only one to live out every young football fans dream

The midfielder headed his beloved side in front against the club’s bitter rivals in a 4-2 win and said it was probably the favourite moment of his career to date.

Ever since I was a little kid at school, [derby] games I dreamed of playing in and I am lucky enough to play in it,” he explained afterwards.

It almost didn’t happen for him, though, as he thought he was close to becoming a Tottenham player in the summer.

“They [Spurs] werent willing to pay what Villa wanted at the time. But the new owners came in and they changed everything,” he said in September.

Its not like I was devastated it didnt happen, though, because Ive still got to realise how lucky I am to be playing for my boyhood club. Ive played over 100 games for Villa and Ive only just turned 23.”

And Grealish is not the only player who has played and starred for the club they supported as a boy, as talkSPORT.com explains.
