 1900-01 Season Notes

Villa finished a disappointing 15th which represented their lowest ever league position. Despite this Villa's defence was on form and kept 16 clean sheets - more than in their title win the previous season, but goals were hard to come by. Villa hit just 45 in the league with Jack Devey top scoring with just 13 goals.
