ON THIS DAY

Villa played in their second FA Cup Final against West Bromwich Albion, but this time, unlike 1886-87, come out on the losing side.

Goalkeeper Jimmy Warner played his final game for Villa aged 26 before moving on to Newton Heath. After having made some uncharacteristic errors in the final, Jimmy was suspected by some of having been 'influenced' to throw the game with allegedly incriminating events and circumstances being disclosed after the event. Warner had missed 11 games earlier in the season through injury and on his return his form was generally below his previous level and as such his errors at Kennington Oval weren't quite the surprise they would have been previously. Jimmy however couldn't shake the tag and his Villa career was over.
