Sometimes a player scores a goal and creates a moment that will remain ingrained in the memories of supporters for many years to come.

And in April 2013, full-back Matt Lowton did just that in a typically feisty affair against Stoke City.

A vital 30-yard strike, aiding Villa's Barclays Premier League survival quest, silenced the Britannia Stadium, bar the sizeable travelling contingent who mobbed the player knowing their team had secured victory.

Chesterfield-born Lowton arrived from Sheffield United in 2012 and was Paul Lambert's second signing.

In August 2012, he made his claret and blue debut against West Ham United. Lowton bagged his first goal a month later in a comfortable victory over Swansea City.

Before that, he worked his way through the Blades' academy via Hungary where in 2009, he went out on loan to Ferencvaros (United's sister club) along with reserve team-mate Sam Wedgbury to gain first-team experience.

Lowton gained valuable experience, making 18 appearances before returning to Sheffield.

On his return in March 2010, Lowton found himself on the fringes of the first team and made his senior debut from the bench for United in the 1-1 draw with Cardiff City.

His full debut arrived on the final game of the season.

Following a mixed start to the 2010-11 campaign, Lowton scored his first senior goal in October 2010 in a 3-3 draw with Burnley.

He was a regular starter for the rest of the season, scoring four goals and was a shining light in a dark campaign as United were relegated to League One.

A dominant season in League One followed where Lowton played 55 times.
