MATCH REPORT

*The Sporting Life*
Monday 16 November 1891

WEST BROMWICH ALBION V. ASTON VILLA.

Great local rivalry exists between these teams, and. consequently, the meeting at Stoney Lane. West Bromwich, caused a large crowd—fully 11,000 spectators turning out.

The recent bad luck of the Albion did not prevent their being fancied. The previous game was won by the Villa. Excitement was intense and after only some four minutes had been played. J. Devey finished up a bit of splendid work by the Villa with a champion goal.

The enthusiasm of the Brummagem crowd knew no bounds. They were, however, taken aback before long, when Nicholls, from a cross, headed the ball past the Villa’s custodian. No point was. however, allowed on account of foul few seconds before ; decidedly hard lines for the Albion, who were one behind half-time.

In the second moiety the Villa’s superior stamina soon told its tale, and they quickly wore their opponents down. However, the Albion’s defence was good, and all the goals which were scored against them were two—one Campbell and the other by Hare. Result Villa, three : Albion, none.
