MATCH REPORT

*Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser*
Friday 02 January 1891

EVERTON v. ASTON VILLA. Played at Everton. Dickson started for the Villa. Everton at once pressed, and in the first 10 minutes the visitors were kept defending. After the " Villans " had taken a fruitless comer, which was well cleared by Holt, Everton raced down the left, and for several minutes were peppering away at the visiting goal. Shots by Geary, Chadwick, and Millward, however, all missed their mark, and after a brief spurt by the visitors Everton again attacked. Brady essayed the shot, which struck the crossbar, and, rebounding, Chadwick met the ball, and scored the first goal for Everton.

For some time play was very even, and then Everton were conceded two corners. From the second Brown put the ball between his own posts.

The "Villans" then had a chance. Dickson shooting right into the goal mouth, which Hannah cleared.

At half time the score stood: —Everton, two goals; Aston Villa, nil

In the second half play for a short time was fairly even, and then Everton for fully 20 minutes attacked vigorously.

Eventually Holt got the leather, and transferred to Brady, the latter beating Warner, a feat which he repeated again a moment later. These successes spurred on the homesters, who pressed too close, and Geary added the fifth goal, which was the last point scored. Score: Everton, five goals; Aston Villa, nil.
