Tom Riley

Player #191 for Aston Villa, Thomas Riley, known as Tom Riley played as a full back for the club.

Tom played for Villa between 1905-06 and 1907-08 making 16 appearances over his 3 seasons.

Tom was born in Blackburn in March 1882 and made his debut appearance as a 24 year old on the 13th April 1906.

Villa had signed Tom from Brentford earlier in the month.

Tom would only appear in the league for Villa and was used as a back up rather than a regular first team player.

Tom would make his final appearance on 5th October 1907 aged 25 and so his 18 months at Villa actually featured appearances in 3 different seasons.

Tom played under the George Ramsey led Management Committee.

Tom moved on to Brentwood FC in June 1908.

Tom passed away in Southampton in 1939 aged 57.
