MATCH TIMELINE

Wednesday, 30 April 1924

ON THIS DAY

Villa bounce back from their FA Cup final defeat to win a third successive League game and close out their division one campaign for 1923-24 with eighteen wins, thirteen draws and eleven defeats in their forty two top flight games.

A season notable for two main reasons on the pitch and one tragedy off it.

Firstly, Villaโ€™s record eighth FA Cup final appearance, all coming under Secretary Manager George Ramsay, and only their second defeat - and secondly, the regularity with which Villa failed to score, drawing a blank on a total of sixteen occasions across their 48 game season - a third of their total as Villa finish sixth for the second successive season, yet for all their difficulties in front of goal, Len Capewell apart, they also conceded just 40 goals across the period, keeping 22 clean sheets.

Off the pitch the murder of Villa centre back Tommy Ball sent shockwaves through the club and football and it is to the great credit of George Ramsayโ€™s men that they not only continued on, but maintained form in extremely trying, tragic circumstances.
