MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Upon the resumption of hostilities Toone was again hotly besieged but he saved. Evans also distinguished himself by fine work for the Villa. Just before the close Athersmith shot a fifth goal for Aston Villa, who won handsomely by five goals to one."

*The Sporting Life*
Monday, 9 November 1891

ASTON VILLA V. NOTTS COUNTY.

This, always attractive fixture at Perry Barr, proved a great draw on Saturday, when some 7,000 people witnessed the match.

Villa won the toss, and playing down the hill at once pressed. Toone having save several hot shots, but at length out of a scrum Devey sent in one which proved too good for the Notts custodian.

Then Notts swarmed round the home goal, and the ball being got through the score was made equal.

The Villa again went away and Dennis Hodgetts scored the second goal. Burns was now injured, had to retire, but he afterwards resumed play, and then Campbell scored third for the home side, who were playing finely.

A fourth was shot Hare, and at half time Aston Villa led by four goals to one.

Upon the resumption of hostilities Toone was again hotly besieged but he saved. Evans also distinguished himself by fine work for the Villa. Just before the close Athersmith shot a fifth goal for Aston Villa, who won handsomely by five goals to one.
