MATCH TIMELINE

Monday, 26 April 1937

ON THIS DAY

Villa lose six consecutive games for the first time in their history as their first ever season in the second tier ends in disaster.

Villa had made it just twelve wins in their last thirty six second tier games and delivered an overall record of sixteen wins, twelve draws and fourteen defeats in forty two division two matches to finish ninth.

Jimmy McMullan had recorded five wins (38%), five draws and three defeats (23%) in his thirteen division two matches in charge and his successor Jimmy Hogan had delivered eleven wins (38%), seven draws and eleven defeats (39%) in his twenty nine game spell.

As a result the jury was very much still out on Jimmy Hogan and but for a best run of seven wins in eight games in the Spring, Villaโ€™s season would have proved significantly worse.

Meanwhile, midfielder Tom Griffiths made the last of his 68 appearances for Villa aged 31 before moving on to Wrexham, whilst forward Matt Moralee made his twelfth and final appearance aged 26 before moving on to Leicester City in November 1937.
