Goal! Signed Aston Villa football shirt sells for £1,050 at Lichfield auction

A FOOTBALL shirt signed by the Aston Villa team which won the 1982 European Cup has sold at auction for £1,050.

The iconic shirt autographed with 19 signatures including winning goal-scorer Peter Withe and substitute goalie Nigel Spink went under the hammer at The Lichfield Auction Centre with Richard Winterton Auctioneers on Monday, August 8.

Included in the lot was a framed poster print depicting Aston Villa playing in the FA cup final at Wembley in 2000 – the last to be played at the old Wembley Stadium.

Auctioneer Richard Winterton said: “We had a tremendous amount of interest in this lot.

“Obviously from where we are in the Midlands there are Villa supporters all around.

“An iconic shirt to have and to own and lots of interest flying in from the local area plus strong international bidding has resulted in this superb outcome for our client.”

A video of the moment the shirt sold can be watched here on our Facebook page.

1982 was the first time the Midlands team took the European Cup trophy, beating Bayern Munich 1–0 in Rotterdam at the final on May 26 1982, making it the sixth consecutive victory for an English side in the competition.
