Tommy Southren

Player #447 for Aston Villa, Thomas Cansfield Southren, known as Tommy Southren, played as a winger for the club in the outside right position.

Tommy played for Villa between 1954-55 and 1958-59 making 72 appearances and scoring 7 goals.

Tommy was born in Southwick, Sunderland on 1 August 1927 and made his debut appearance for Villa on Monday, 27 December 1954 aged 27.

Villa had signed Tommy from West Ham United for a fee of £12,000 earlier in December 1952.

Tommy made 20 appearances in his debut season, scoring three goals, and followed that up with one goal in 33 appearances the following campaign.

Those 53 appearances proved to be the bulk of his starts for Villa and thereafter Tommy was used as a first team back up.

As a result he wasn’t used in the victorious 1957 FA Cup winning campaign and would make his final appearance on the first day of the 1958-59 season on Saturday, 23 August 1958 aged 31, a campaign at the end of which Villa were relegated to the Second Division.

Tommy subsequently moved on to Bournemouth in October 1958.

Tommy had played under Villa managers Eric Houghton and Joe Mercer.

Tommy passed away in Welwyn Garden City on 10 May 2004 aged 76.
