Family of vile Twitter troll who mocked Jack Grealish over his dead brother say he has 'no regrets'

Twisted Alfie Perkins wrote "he might have scored but it'll never bring his dead brother back" after the Aston Villa ace made it 1-0 in the Second City derby.

Tweeting a picture of little Keelan Grealish's grave, he added: "That gives me more satisfaction than anything ever could".

Speaking outside the family home in Chelmsley Wood, Birmingham, a relative told The Sun Online: "He won’t regret what he’s done.

"I haven’t spoken to him. He won’t speak to none of us.

"I don’t care what happens to him, to be honest."

Grealish might have scored but it'll never bring his dead brother back

The university student is thought to have gone into hiding after his post sparked outrage last night.

Keelan tragically died in his sleep aged nine months in 2000.

Last year Jack posted a heartfelt Instagram tribute to his brother – writing: "as long as there is someone in the sky to protect me, there is no one on earth who could break me.

Cops are believed to be investigating the post – which racked up thousands of retweets before cowardly Alfie deleted his account last night.


Another sick post read: "Grealish went down quicker than his brother got lowered into the grave".

And writing on the morning of the game, he predicted that Birmingham City striker Che Evans would "score the winner and reveal a shirt in front of Grealish saying 'where's your brother gone'".

Neighbours today described Alfie as a "nice lad" who did "something stupid".

One said "He don’t live around here no more. I think he’s at uni.

I don’t care what happens to him, to be honest

"He used to hang around with my lad. They got on well, to a point.

"He seemed nice, I’ve no idea why he would have done something so stupid”.

Another resident said: “I know about the post. Everyone knows about it.

"But he isn’t here. I don’t know where he is. I haven’t seen him for a while."

It comes after a jobless dad admitted storming the St Andrew's pitch to punch Grealish in the head.


Paul Mitchell, 27, dashed past stewards and whacked the star from behind because he thought he was a "n*b".

The Birmingham supporter was today snapped staring straight at the camera as he made his way to the city's magistrates court.

JPs heard how Mitchell has been forced to move with his family out of Birmingham following "death threats" over the incident.

He today pleaded guilty to assault and invading the pitch ten minutes into the match on Sunday.

His lawyer said: "This is a high profile case, captured on national television.

“My client’s young family have had to leave their home and move out of Birmingham in fear of serious harm or death.”

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said the force would be "reviewing complaints around offensive social media posts."
