Rodney Trotter's Debut

Rodney Trotter's Debut

On this day in 2002, Peter Crouch made his Villa debut following his transfer from Portsmouth.

It wasn’t the happiest of starts for the towering striker as Villa lost 3-2 away to Bolton Wanderers, but the player popularly known by Villa fans as Rodney Trotter, marked his home debut with a goal in a 1-1 draw against Newcastle United the following Tuesday.
