Tammy Abraham

Player #928 for Aston Villa, Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham, known as Tammy Abraham, played as a centre forward for the club.

Tammy played for Villa in the 2018-19 season making 40 appearances and scoring 26 goals.

Tammy was born in London on 2 October 1997.

Tammy had signed Villa on loan from Chelsea for the 2018-19 Football League Championship season and such was his commitment to the Villa cause that he refused a mid-season overture from Wolverhampton Wanderers to feature in the Premier League.

Tammy made his debut appearance for Villa at the age of 20 on Saturday, 15 September 2018 in the 1-1 Championship draw at Blackburn Rovers after being signed by then Villa boss Steve Bruce.

Tammy scored his debut goal for the club in his second match - the 2-0 home win over Rotherham United on Tuesday, 18 September 2018 with his second strike coming in Steve Bruce’s final match in charge of Villa on Tuesday, 2 October 2018 - a 3-3 draw with Preston North End.

With the departure of Bruce and at the arrival of the more attack minded and inventive Dean Smith as Villa boss, Tammy thrived. Hitting 4 goals in his first six games under Dean Smith, Tammy then hit four of Villa’s goals in the remarkable home draw with Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, 28 November 2018.

Tammy then hit 9 goals in Villa’s next 11 games before Villa hit a mid season wobble.

Tammy returned to the goal trail in in the 4-0 win over Derby County on Saturday, 2 March 2019 which would turn out to be the beginning of Villa’s best ever run of League wins - 10 in a row - during which five goals.

Those wins, whilst catapulting Villa into the play offs, would feature Tammy’s final goals of the regular Championship season however he would hit a crucial winner in the Play Off first leg against West Bromwich Albion and would score the crucial winning penalty in the semi final shoot out at the Hawthorns that secure Villa a place in their second successive play off final.

Whilst Tammy didn’t score in the Wembley Play off on Monday, 27 May 2019 that Villa won to return to the Premier League after 3 seasons away, he had more than made a contribution to Villa’s remarkable season and became the first Villa player to score 20 goals in a season since Peter Withe in the league title winning season of 1980-81.

Sadly Villa couldn’t bring back Tammy for the 2019-20 Premier League campaign as his prowess for Villa and Chelsea’s transfer embargo wakened the London to his home-grown potential however Tammy will always be a Villa boy for all those who saw this most natural of goal scorers light up the scoring charts in Villa’s charge back to the top flight.

Tammy had played under Steve Bruce and Dean Smith.
