Charlie Athersmith and the Umbrella
« on: April 06, 2016, 01:51:53 PM »
The thing with supporting the Villa is that the club is steeped in folklore, whether it be stories of gas lamps, the melting down of a lost FA Cup trophy or a star inter-war forward keeping chickens in his front room. The list can go on and on, but the story about Charlie Athersmith and an umbrella is something that poster MorrisNielson thought he could actually look up and see if was true or not.
