The Supporters Trust has for sale on Ebay an item where the proceeds will be put towards the statue of William McGregor which is due to unveiled at Villa Park this Saturday. To access EBay page, click here.
This was the flag carried by Allan Evans, as Villa’s representative at Preston Cathedral in 1988 with representatives of the other 11 founder members of the Football League. It has been donated by the Football League and there is a letter to this effect which is included in the auction. There’s also a photcopied page with photos of the other 11 flags and the Villa one is blocked out, but you will see that this is of the same style.
The flag is in very good condition and can come with the flagpole which has some signs of wear on the gilt.
