From John Lerwill:

I’ve just done a major update to my Chronicles webpage http://hp-h.com/p/astonvilla/a_villa_chron.htm – it now includes a summary of the contents of Volume 1 (taken from the draft book’s Preface), and also an entertaining Villa match report from 1883, as a larger example of the
book’s content.

In terms of the research status, I have to date covered the periods 1880 to 1888 and 1898 to 1915. I’m just entering the period 1889 to 1897, and I will also be looking for material before 1880. There are gaps in the research covered so far (particularly 1884 and 1905), but they will be covered.


I don’t think you’ll find a more comprehensive archive Villa site on the net, a very worthy read and soon to be transformed into a book, if JAL can ever get his research completed!
