Tommy Horton

Player #21 for Aston Villa, Thomas Albert Horton, known as Tommy Horton played as a forward for the club.

Tommy represented Villa on a single occasion during the 1881-82 FA Cup campaign.

Tommy was born in Dudley Port, eight miles from Villa’s current ground, on 2nd April 1859 and made his first and last appearance as a 22 year old on 21st January 1882.

Villa had signed Tommy from Tipton BCT but he soon moved on to Walsall Town Swifts without adding to his appearances.

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

Tommy passed away in May 1921 in West Bromwich aged 62.
