Monday 18 January 1892

ASTON VILLA v. HEANOR TOWN
VILLA DO NOT FAIL TO WIN.

Tho fact that this was looked upon as a foregone conclusion for Aston Villa served to deter the usual cup from assembling at Perry Barr on Saturday afternoon, but nevertheless there was a good muster.

The ground had been carefully prepared, the surface being strewed over with sand. The Villa team were the first to make their appearance, and wore a crape band on their arms as a memorial of the death of the Duke of Clarence.

They were shortly followed by Heanor Town who were accorded a very hearty reception.

Devey started uphill and the Villa began to attack. Devey and Hodgetts both making attempts to score. After a breakaway the Villa settled down to a constitutional attack but their shooting was disgraceful.

Occasional breakaways by the visitors, however, somewhat relieved the monotony. The referee stopped a shot by Cowan accidentally, and then Athersmith fouled the ball. Corners and other opportunities offered themselves to the Villa, but they failed to score.

Warner then stopped a good shot from Shepherd, and more attacks by Aston Villa brought halftime, when neither side had scored.

Upon resuming play after changing over Aston Villa infused more life into their play and attacked with much more zeal, and from a return Cotton, Hodgetts got possession and scored the first goal for his side.

A chance afterwards presented itself to Athersmith as the Heanor goal keeper was lying prostrate, but for some reason or other the opportunity was lost. Coulton and Hare skimmed the posts, and then Hodgetts scored a clever goal from an overhead kick.

Devey followed up with third point and shortly after, from a centre Athersmith, Hodgetts easily gained a fourth goal.

Heanor were, however, not entirely done with, and Shepherd, going away, got past Evans, and with a good shot beat Warner and Scored the first goal for the visitors amid a demonstration from the Derbyshire men. who were present in some force. This seemed to enliven the game all round, and the Villa went away at a good pace, but they failed to further lower the opponents colours, and the game ended victory for Aston Villa by four goals to one.
