Aston Villa: Dalian Atkinson’s wonder goal against Wimbledon remembered by fans

Aston Villa: Dalian Atkinson’s wonder goal against Wimbledon remembered by fans - Aston Villa

Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to one of the club’s most “iconic” moments, looking back at Dalian Atkinson’s strike against Wimbledon in the 1992/93 season.

The Shrewsbury-born striker spent four years in a claret and blue shirt during his career, netting an impressive 25 league goals in 85 appearances. Having been a fan favourite during his time at Villa Park, the striker scored one of the most memorable goals in Premier League history, running past a number of Wimbledon defenders before lobbing the keeper and wheeling away in celebration.

Following his career at Villa, Atkinson would go on to spend time with Fenerbahce, Metz, Manchester City, Al-Ittihad, Daejeon Citizen and Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors (as per Transfermarkt).

Sadly in 2016, the former England B striker lost his life after an incident involving police, which resulted in one officer being charged with his murder.
