Super Stan

Super Stan

On this day in 1928, Stan Lynn was born in Bolton.

A solid, hard-tackling full-back, Lynn joined Villa from Accrington Stanley in 1950 and made 324 appearances for the club. Remarkably for a full-back he also scored 38 goals, including a hat-trick in a 5-2 victory over Sunderland in January 1958. His powerful shot earned him the nickname Stan the Wham, and he was also an FA Cup winner with Villa in 1957 as well as helping us to win the inaugural League Cup in 1961.
