No Leap of faith...

No Leap of faith...

On this day in 1936, Villa were 3-0 home winners over fellow-strugglers Liverpool, thanks to goals from Gordon Hodgson, Jack Maund and Dai Astley.

Sadly, this Leap Year victory failed to prevent relegation from the top flight for the first time in the club’s history.
