MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Devey was playing great game and getting possession he dribbled the ball single-handed through the field and shot a brilliant goal."

*The Sporting Life*
Monday, 26 November 1894

ASTON VILLA v. NOTTS FOREST.

In glorious weather on Perry Barr enclosure these teams met on Saturday before a good attendance.

Both sides were representative, Smith again figuring with Hodgetts in the Villa forward tank. Notts winning the toss elected to face the hill. Splendid combination was displayed by each line of forwards. Pike, Carnelly and Rose making several brilliant runs, whilst Hodgetts and Devey constantly led the Villa to the attack, only to fail at the plucky defence of the visitors.

An onslaught on the Forest goal led by Devey ended in that player landing the ball into Allsopp’s hands, and from the return throw Hodgetts drew first blood for the Villa.

The tactics the Villa forwards were superb, whilst the Foresters seemed to lack finish when in their opponents’ quarters.

Just on the call of “Time” Carnelly made a brilliant run, and this ended in a smart shot which made honours even.

The second ha!f opened with new energy, and Devey scored in the first three minutes, Carnelly then made a good effort, but Welford proved too much for him, whilst Reynolds proved a tower strength in the half-back division.

After several unsuccessful attacks by each side Cowan made a long kick at goal which went into the net, making the score three to one.

Devey was playing great game and getting possession he dribbled the ball single-handed through the field and shot a brilliant goal which proved the last point in the game. Result:— Aston Villa, 4 goals; Notts Forest, 1 goal.
