Apologies if already posted, but Jackie Sewell, part of AVFCs 1957 Cup winning side, passed away today. 

Even I'm not old enough to have seen him play, but I could quote that 57 side from a very young age. Legends each one.

RIP Jackie

One of the names that brings back great memories. I started supporting Villa in 1956. I had photos of all the players cut out of the newspapers and stuck in scrap books. What a final that was.

R.I.P.

There are only two of that 57 final side still with us now in Sims and McParland 

RIP Jackie

I remember watching them both Mark as a young boy.

didn't have the pleasure of watching Jackie Sewell.....but sounds like he was some guy.

Jackie made 145 Villa appearances and scored 40 goals including 18 goals in our FA Cup winning season. He played 6 times for England scoring 3 goals including one in the 1953 Wembley (the equalizer that made it 1-1) 6-3 defeat against Hungary. Sad to see another of our boys of 57 leave us. RIP - HEITS.
