KEY MAN

Charlie Wallace, scored on his final appearance for Villa to help secure a fifth successive win for the first time this season on the final day, Saturday, 7 May 1921.

MATCH TIMELINE

ON THIS DAY

Villa secure a fifth successive win for the first time this season on the final day to make it eighteen wins, seven draws and seventeen defeats in forty two division one games.

As a result Villa finish in 10th place, one place lower than in 1919-20 as the team once again struggled for form and consistency across the season.

Meanwhile, winger Charlie Wallace played his last game for Villa before moving on to Oldham Athletic later this month. Charlie had played 350 times for Villa, scoring 57 goals over his ten seasons with the club whilst winning 1909-10 League title, the 1912-13 FA Cup and the 1919-20 FA Cup.

Also playing for the final time were goalkeeper Sam Hardy - having kept goal for Villa 183 times - before moving on to Nottingham Forest in August 1921 and midfielder Jack Hampson who made his fifteenth and final Villa appearance before moving on to Chelsea in September 1921.
