Down Wembley Way

Down Wembley Way

On this day in 1924, Villa played at Wembley for the first time.

The boys in claret-and-blue stepped out at the Empire Stadium for the FA Cup final against Newcastle United – only the second to be played at the new venue. Unfortunately two late goals condemned them to a 2-0 defeat.
