ON THIS DAY

The original match - won by Villa - and in effect the opening game of the 1892-93 campaign for both clubs was subsequently decided to be treated as a โ€˜friendlyโ€™ game thereby necessitating this replay.

Centre forward George Davis scored on his sole appearance for Villa aged 22 after joining from Aston Manor. Davis moved on to Smethwick Centaur.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Villa forced the game but nothing was done till just before half time when Devey scored a splendid goal for Villa."

*The Sporting Life*
Tuesday, 20 September 1892

FOOTBALL UNDER ASSOCIATION RULES.
THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE.
WEST BROMWICH ALBION v ASTON VILLA.

This replayed match between the above League teams took place at West Bromwich in miserable weather yesterday (Monday) before 2,000 spectators.

There were three changes in the Villa team and one in the Albion, but both sides were strong.

Villa won the toss, the home team kicking off up hill.

The game at once became close and exciting, Reader saving two or three shots cleverly, whilst a few minutes later Mโ€™Leod struck the post with a stunning shot and Dunning dealt brilliantly with two hot ones.

Villa forced the game but nothing was done till just before half time when Devey scored a splendid goal for Villa.

The second half opened in a startling manner, Albion running down immediately and obtaining a corner from which they equalised.

A short time afterwards Pearson scored from a pass by Bassett.

The visitors then went up the hill at a rare pace, Davis equalising with a shot that Reader tried in vain to save.

The game still continued fast and exciting but Albion against scoring won a grandly contested match by three goals to two.
