Walter Harvey

Player #33 for Aston Villa, Walter Alfred Harvey played as a goalkeeper for the club. Walter represented Villa four times during the 1884-85 FA Cup campaign.

Walter was born in Derby in November 1856 and made his debut as a 28 year old on 3rd November 1884. Villa had signed Walter from Wednesbury Strollers.

Walter was the sixth custodian of the Villa goal in FA Cup football and in total he conceded 4 goals in his 4 appearances and kept two clean sheets, at a ratio of 1.00 goals per game.

Although Walter’s Villa career was limited his statistics were a significant improvement on previous custodians of the net.

Walter’s final game for Villa came on the 10th January 1885 before moving on to newly formed Chester.

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

Walter passed away in Nottingham in 1940 aged 84.
