Thomas Bryan

Player #23 for Aston Villa, Thomas Bryan, played as a defender for the club. Thomas represented Villa twice in the 1882-83 FA Cup campaign.

Thomas was born in Walsall, ten miles from Villa’s current ground, in 1859 and made his debut as a 23 year old on 21st October 1882.

Villa had signed Thomas from Wednesbury Strollers.

Thomas’ second and final game for Villa came on the 18th November 1882 before moving on to Bilston Town.

Thomas played in the era when team selection was made by a Management Committee rather than the latter day more typical Manager role.

Thomas passed away in May 1913 in Birmingham aged 54.
