ON THIS DAY

Right back Gary Charles made his final appearance for Villa aged 28 before moving on to S.L. Benfica for a fee of £1,500,000 later this month. Charles missed the entire 1996-97 season after suffering a horrific injury in April 1996 and fought his way back to first team contention. Charles however wouldn’t be able to hold down a place or reach his pre injury form and was mainly used as a substitute under John Gregory. In total, Charles made 105 appearances and scored 4 goals from 1994-95 to 1998-99.

MATCH QUOTES

“We have already played against and beaten a lot of the teams you would expect to find in the latter stages of the FA Cup. “I see no reason why we cannot figure prominently and of course the double of league title and FA Cup would be very nice. “We have a long way to go in both, but why not?” Stan Collymore. A good cup run makes a nice break from the league. I would love to return for another Wembley final and hopefully go one better. And why not?” Steve Watson.
