MATCH TIMELINE

ON THIS DAY

Villa record consecutive home and away losses to Preston to make it one win, a draw and eight defeats in ten division one games so far this season as their post WWI got off to the worst imaginable start.

Villa handed their latest debuts in this match to forward Walter Boyman and midfielder Jack Hampson, 28 and 22, after they joined from Cradley Heath St Luke’s and Leeds City in August and October 1919 respectively.

As a result, having started the season with six of eleven players who had represented Villa in their final game of 1914-15, across the subsequent ten games Villa had handed debuts to thirteen players without finding the necessary combination to win football matches.

Meanwhile, midfielder George Hadley became the latest of four new arrivals who also made their final appearances over that ten game period as he made his fourth and final appearance aged 30 before moving on to Coventry City in August 1920.

KEY MAN

Clem Stephenson, scored for the third time in four games but Villa lose an eighth in ten, Saturday, 18 October 1919.
