The Irish Legend

On this day in 1934, Peter McParland was born in Newry, Northern Ireland.

McParland joined Villa from Dundalk in 1952 and over the course of a decade he became a claret-and-blue legend, scoring 121 goals in 341 league and cup appearances. He was also the first player to score in both an FA Cup final (1957) and League Cup final (1961).
