Signed for a then club-record £500,000 at the start of the 1980-81 season Peter Withe’s name has the firmest of standings in Villa folklore as the scorer of the winning goal in the greatest moment in Villa’s history. He is the man who got that famous winning goal against Bayern Munich in the European Cup final in 1982.

Peter forged a wonderful partnership with busy Birmingham-born Gary Shaw. He spent five years at Villa, scoring 92 goals in 233 appearances. 20 of those came in the title-winning season.

ST – Billy Walker

Walker spent 19 years with the club. With 244 goals to his name, the striker still remains Villa’s all-time leading goalscorer despite almost half a century passing since his death in 1964.

He captained Villa and England during the 1920s, scoring 12 League and FA Cup hat-tricks. He became the first player to convert three penalties in a game.

If that wasn’t impressive enough he also deputized in goal for club and country.
