Mungo Bridge

Player #957 for Aston Villa, Mungo Bridge has played as a centre back for the club since the 2020-21 season.

Mungo was born on 9 December 2000 and signed professional forms with Villa in July 2019 aged 18.

Described by Villa as a classy, ball playing centre back, his impressive performances saw Bridge promoted to the Villa Under 23 squad for the 2019-20 season under Mark Delaney and Delaney promoted Bridge to the first team squad before giving him his first team debut in the 2020-21 season aged 20 in the 1-4 FA Cup defeat to Liverpool on Friday, 8 January 2021.

Bridge was part of the youngest ever team to ever take the field for Villa in a professional game - aged 18.8 years on average - after the first team squad was forced into isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic which had seen a raft of players and staff testing positive for the virus in the week preceding the game.

Bridge was also one of 16 debutants in the game - the most in a single game in Villa’s history and was also part of the starting XI made up of 11 debutants, the first time this had happened since Villa’s first professional fixture - also in the FA Cup - on Saturday, 13 December 1879 against Stafford Road. Bridge made his debut appearance under caretaker manager Mark Delaney following Dean Smith having to join the first team in isolation.

Bridge, in normal circumstances, would have missed his first team opportunity against Liverpool as he was one of the Under 23 side who played within the Villa first team ‘bubble’ but due to a non-Covid related illness he had been out of contact with the quarantined squad allowing him to make his surprise debut.

The Birmingham Mail described Bridge’s debut thus:

“Bridge was good in possession tonight. There were a few nervy moments when he was dispossessed on the odd occasion but he more than made up for that with a string of sliding challenges to thwart the likes of Salah and Mane. The kid with the dreadlocks must be pinching himself after the night he’s had. Brilliant.”
