ON THIS DAY

Reigning Champions Villa finished the season unbeaten in 6 with 5 wins to retain the League Title - their 5th in total. It would be another week however before the title was confirmed as Sheffield United had yet to complete their games however only a remarkable set of goalscoring feats could have prevented Villa claiming the title for the second season in succession.

Forward Fred Wheldon made his final Villa appearance aged 30. Wheldon moved to West Bromwich Albion for a fee of ยฃ100.
