Cricketers from the local Wesleyan church formed the club in 1874. The team became one of the twelve founder members of the Football League in 1888, by which stage they had already won their first trophy with an FA Cup victory in 1887. They won the league championship 5 times in its first 12 seasons. with Villa's highpoint coming in 1897 when they won the League - FA Cup Double. Their name actually comes from a Shakespeare poem the Bard had sauntered across from Stratford-Upon-Avon to view the building work in the area close to Spaghetti Junction (which didn't exist in his day, it was called Spaghetti crossroads then) - the poem reads:

The sight of such labours and burgeoning construction,
Beauteous result of that exquisite function,
As ton and as ton of brick
From deepest sunset orange to plain manilla,
Were assembled forsooth,
To createth a villa.

The colours chosen by the new club reflected their attitude to the game. The claret picked to reflect the colour of the red wine quaffed by the carafe after playing and the blue, the sky behind as they raised their glasses high in celebration. Most of Aston Villa's history has been spent in the top division but top level success was only found in the Cup competitions until 1981 when they caused a major shock by taking their first league championship for more than 70 years (their 6th title came in 1910). This was followed up by a European Cup win the following season. Graham Taylor took Villa close to another title in 1990 and they again finished second in 1993, the inaugural season of the FA Premier League.
