Tommy Green

Player #47 for Aston Villa, Thomas Charles Walter Green, known as Tommy Green, played as a forward for the club.

Tommy represented Villa between 1887-88 and 1888-89.

Tommy was born in Worcester on 7th August 1863 and made his debut as a 24 year old on 15th October 1887.

Villa had signed Tommy from West Bromwich Albion and he went on to represent the club for two seasons.

Tommy scored Villa´s first league goal, in the inaugural league fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 8 September 1888 that also featured an infamous Gershom Cox own goal.

Described as an enthusiastic forward, Tommy went on to hit a hat-trick in the 1888-89 9-1 rout of Notts County - his only league season - as Villa went on to clinch the runner up spot.

Despite scoring at a rate of more than 1 every other match, Tommy was transferred away from Villa to newly formed Kidderminster Harriers just a year later.

Tommy’s final game for Villa came on 2nd March 1889 aged 25 having played under the George Ramsay led Management Committee.

Tommy passed away on 2nd October 1923 in Droitwich aged 60.
