Tommy Jackson

Player #283 for Aston Villa, Thomas Jackson, known as Tommy Jackson played as a goalkeeper for the club.

Tommy played for Villa between 1920-21 and 1929-30 making 186 appearances.

Villa had signed Tommy from Durham University in August 1919 and he was signed to professional forms with the club in July 1920.

Tommy was born in Benwell Village on 16 March 1898 and he made his debut appearance for Villa on 23 February 1921 aged 22.

Tommy was the 34th custodian of the Villa goal in League and Cup football.

Over his 186 appearances, Tommy conceded 274 goals at a ratio of 1.47 whilst he kept 62 clean sheets for Villa - exactly a third of his games.

In the 1922-23 season Tommy only missed 3 matches as he settled in as Villa’s number one following the departure of Sam Hardy.

In the following season however Tommy relinquished his position to Cyril Spiers and they would continue to compete for the first team position over the next few seasons.

Tommy once again took the ascendant relationship and was reinstated in 1923-24, playing in the 1923-24 FA Cup Final defeat to home town club Newcastle United.

Tommy played his final game for Villa on 1 February 1930 after 10 years as a Villa player before moving on to Kidderminster Harriers later that year.

Tommy played under both the George Ramsay and Billy Smith led Management Committees.

Tommy passed away in Sheldon in 1975 aged 77.
