Who Scored The First Own Goal In The English Premiership History?

The first goal in League history is a subject of debate, although it is virtually certain that the landmark effort was tucked away by Aston Villa's Gershom Cox on 8 September 1888 - into his own net. Villa were playing at their Midlands rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers that day, on the first weekend of the Football League, and drew 1-1 after Cox scored his own goal and then his team-mate Tom Green equalised for Villa.
