PLAYER BIO

Former Aston Villa youngster who signed for the Pitmen in May 2021 after three years at Coleshill Town

Halesowen-born Webb spent nine years at Villa Park as a trainee without making a first-team appearance and was released in the summer of 2016. He made the move to Scotland and joined Kilmarnock, becoming one of Lee Clarke's eleven summer signings. He only made two appearances for Killy during the season before heading south once more in March 2017 to join Kidderminster Harriers

Another similarly limited spell of appearances at Aggborough saw Webb make two starts for Harriers before he was allowed to join Rushall Olympic on a dual registration deal until the end of the 2017-2018 season. He helped the Pics to a mid-table finish in the Evo-Stik Premier League and a Walsall Senior Cup win over Walsall Wood before agreeing a permanent deal with the club for the coming season

However, without kicking a ball in the 2018-2019 season, Webb joined step four Coleshill Town as he looked to pair up his day job of coaching Aston Villa's junior sides with his semi-professional commitments. He made a number of appearances for Coleshill over the next three years, with the final two campaigns voided due to the coronavirus pandemic

In May 2021, Webb made a return to step three, becoming the Pitmen's first new signing of the 2021-2022 season. He started the new season in the side but suffered a long-term injury that kept him out of action for three months. After returning to fitness in December 2021, Webb and team-mate Callam Mendez-Jones were allowed to join Pitching In Northern Premier League Division One Central neighbours Sutton Coldfield Town on a dual registration deal in a bid to get some valuable game time at Coles Lane
