Sweet charity for Peter

Sweet charity for Peter

On this day in 1981, League champions Villa and FA Cup winners Tottenham Hotspur draw 2-2 at Wembley in the Charity Shield, the curtain-raiser which is now known as the Community Shield.

Peter Withe netted both Villa goals in a match attended by 92,500, with Mark Falco on target twice for Spurs. 

The clubs shared the trophy, each holding it for six months.
