Dave Hickson

Player #450 for Aston Villa, Dave Hickson, played as a centre forward for the club. Dave played for Villa in 1955-56 making 12 appearances and scoring once.

Dave was born in Ellesmere Port on 30 October 1929 and made his debut appearance for Villa on Monday, 5 September 1955 aged 25.

Villa had signed Dave from Everton for the significant fee of £17,500 earlier in September 1955 but he would only feature in a 12 game consecutive spell between September and November 1955 before playing his final game for the club on Saturday, 12 November 1955.

Dave moved to Huddersfield Town just days later for £16,000.

Dave had been an active Villa player for just 68 days and was sold at a £1,500 loss less than 3 months after joining.
