MATCH SUMMARY

Albert Allen scored Villa's consolation goals for a second game in succession but despite a troubling end to the season - conceding 13 goals in two games - Villaโ€™s first league campaign has been a success, finishing runners up to invincibles Preston North End. The intensity, length and demands of a league season however were all too visible as players struggled to adapt to playing every Saturday.

ON THIS DAY

Despite a troubling end to the season - conceding 13 goals in two games - Villaโ€™s first league campaign has been a success, finishing runners up to invincibles Preston North End. The intensity, length and demands of a league season however were all too visible as players struggled to adapt to playing every Saturday and the injury toll at the season end was far too much to cope with.

Half Back Archie Wollaston made his final appearance for Villa aged 24 before moving on to Chirk FC

Winger Thomas Harrison made his second and final appearance for Villa aged 21 before moving on to Halesowen FC

The versatile Archie Goodall made his final appearance for Villa aged 24 before moving on to todayโ€™s opponents Derby County. Archie had scored 7 goals in 14 appearances during the 1888-89 season.

MATCH QUOTES

"Villa, however, played somewhat disappointingly, being evidently disheartened by an accident to Hodgetts, who received a terrible blow in the face in a collision with Smith."
