ON THIS DAY

Villa failed to qualify for their first FA Cup semi final following a disputed winning goal for the hosts. With the game level at 3-3 Notts County scored what would prove to be the winner before Villa had a goal ruled out despite it being handled on the line by an opposition player thereby preventing its legitimate entry into the net.

Wing half David Anderson, forward Andy Hunter, goalkeeper Tommy Mason and half back Ted Lee made their final FA Cup appearances for Villa.
