Trevor Birch

Player #446 for Aston Villa, Trevor Birch, nicknamed Clamp, played as a right half for the club.

Trevor played for Villa between 1954-55 and 1959-60 making 22 appearances.

Trevor was born in West Bromwich, less than 7 miles from Villa Park, on 20 November 1933 and made his debut appearance for Villa on Saturday, 11 December 1954 aged 21.

Villa had signed Trevor from Accles & Pollock FC and he signed professional forms with Villa in February 1952.

Trevor who had experienced great success in County Youth football before joining Villa, left on National Service almost immediately after signed professional forms with the club.

On his return, Trevor was largely used as back up to the first team making a single appearance in his debut season and a further 9 during the following campaign.

Trevor would then make just 12 further appearances between 1956 and 1960.

Trevor played his final game for Villa on Wednesday, 30 March 1960 aged 26 after 5 seasons with the club before moving on to Stockport County in November 1960.

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

Trevor passed away in Staffordshire in May 2013 aged 79.
