In George Ramsay's remarkable 1200th game as Secretary Manager Villa secure their sixth win of the season thanks to a Billy Kirton strike but the game, result, season and milestone is completely overshadowed by the murder that evening of centre back Tommy Ball (pictured). Tommy's murder, aged 23, at the hands of his landlord, created a tragic end to a promising career that had already delivered 77 appearances since his debut in April 1920.
