Cup History: Aston Villa

9 December 2014

History Between The Two Clubs

On Monday evening Blackpool and Aston Villa were paired together in the FA Cup for the first time since 1938.

The Seasiders were beaten 4-0 on that occasion, when the likes of Alex Munro, Harry Johnston and George Farrow all wore tangerine at Villa Park.

The two clubs have in fact met just twice in cup competitions overall, but Pool had much more success in League Cup.

In 1971 Alan Suddick, Alan Green, Glyn James and Tommy Hutchinson were all on target as The Seasiders beat Villa 4-1 at Bloomfield Road.
