67 years ago - a tournament still being competed for to this day.

4 page programme issued - I presume the "sof" is the true score. Penzance's glory days were just around the corner.

ps - thanks to LittleWiggy for the 84-85 Newport v Derby "extras"!

15th May 1992

FA Youth Cup Final, 2nd leg

Att: 14,681

Manchester United 3 (Thornley, Davies, McKee), Crystal Palace 2 (McPherson, McCall) - 6-3 on aggregate



Palace reached their first Youth Cup Final since winning it in 1978, having disposed of Charlton, Chelsea, Crewe, West Ham & Wimbledon on the way. With a team including the likes of Jimmy Glass and George Ndah, Palace were beaten by an illustrious United XI but not at all disgraced to lose 6-3 on aggregate. The cover photo shows David Beckham and Palace's Russell Edwards, two players whose careers are unlikely to have crossed since this photo from the 1st leg was taken. The United side, with Beckham, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville, and Ryan Giggs on the pitch and Robbie Savage and Keith Gillespie on the bench was star-studded and would shortly disprove that "you don't win anything with kids".

Perhaps the most romantic story here though involves Palace keeper Glass, who, having moved to Swindon in 1998 was loaned to Carlisle for the last 3 matches of the 1998/9 season. Going up for a corner in the last minute of the last game, against Plymouth - a game the Cumbrians had to win to avoid demotion to the Conference - he volleyed home the winner to sink Scarborough, and that goal is remembered thus on Wikipedia:-

His goal was selected as the 72nd greatest sporting moment ever by the Channel 4 programme 100 Greatest Sporting Moments. The goal was also ranked 7th in The Times newspaper's list of the 50 most important goals in football history. His goal against Plymouth Argyle was number 15 in the 20 Goals That Shook the World on ITV4. The Puma boots with which he scored the goal were donated to the National Football Museum in 2014.

He now runs a taxi firm in Wimborne Dorset and I imagine never has to buy a beer if he pops into Carlisle at all.

73 years ago (1942/3 season) and a fixture between the North and South winners of the Football League War Cup.

The game was between Blackpool and Arsenal and was played at Stamford Bridge.

The Gunners were so confident of victory that they arranged a team photo with the trophy hours before kick-off.

Early on it did look that Arsenal’s confidence of victory was not misplaced and they took a 2 goal lead. However class shone through in the end with the Seasiders hitting 4 goals.

Dix, Burbanks, Dodds and Finan were the Blackpool goalscorers and the crowd was 55,195.

The programme is a large size single sheet.

16th May 1951 (my mum's 33rd birthday - today being her 98th!)

Festival of Britain

Att: ?

Crystal Palace 1 (Evans), Nancy 2 (Deladerriere 2)



And so the Festival came to Selhurst Park and the wooden-spoonists in Div III South took on the French Cup runners-up. Their goalkeeper Favre was capped by France that season, and 2 forwards, Aballay and Vega, were in the Argentina squad beaten 2-1 at Wembley a week earlier. Fred Evans got the Palace goal and both Nancy goals were scored by Leon Deladerriere (!). Shake

Blackpool made the trip to Belgium on 16th May 1953 to play West German side RW Essen in a friendly for the cup winners of their respective countries.

Blackpool had won the FA Cup in that famous final a couple of weeks earlier and RW Essen had just won the DFB Cup (German FA Cup).

The match was played in the Jules Otten stadium in Ghent which is currently the home of KAA Gent.

A 12 page programme was issued, written all in German, which seems a little unfair with the game being played in a neutral country.

Blackpool won the match 2-1.

Sorry, Bispham, but I think that's Flemish. Certainly not German.

17th May 1983

Football League, Division II

Att: 22,714

Crystal Palace 1 (Edwards), Burnley 0



Another big night at Selhurst and comfortably the biggest gate of the season as attendances plummeted under Mullery. Burnley had to win to stay up, for Palace a draw was enough - the league table now actually lies as it shows Palace in a heady 15th place having gone up 5 places after this narrow win.

Cover photo shows action from the home game v Fulham the previous October, left to right Ray Lewington, Kevin Lock, Gerry Peyton, Ian Edwards, Kevin Mabbutt and Tony Gale. Edwards had his knee strapped up and he did also on this fateful night in May as shown below where he's celebrating his tap-in for the valuable winner. He started just 16 league games in this, his only season at Selhurst, and retired at the end of it aged 28.

Another Palace issue, this time for the friendly on 17 May 1966 against Aberdeen. Palace won 1-0

Probably the smallest page size programme I have in my collection.

Yes, you are probably right although I think there is some German inside. Definitely no English.

It's all foreign to me anyway. Laughing

69 years ago and a late finish to the 1946/7 season partly due to the weather, and in this instance, due to Charlton’s FA cup run and their appearance in the final clashing with the fixture’s original date.

17th May was actually quite an early finish compared to some clubs who had games up to the middle of June.

The programme is a standard 4 page issue with team line ups across the centre and an advert for RHO Hills on the back cover.

Extended end to the 46/47 season.

Mid-table clash ends in a 2-1 win for the Blades.

Angus Morrison for Derby, 17,660 in attendance.

8 page programme would have kept the reader busy for 30 seconds or so. Unless you were into reading the adverts.

18th May 1960

European Cup Final

Att: 127,621

Real Madrid 7 (Di Stefano 3, Puskas 4), Eintracht Frankfurt 3 (Kress, Stein 2)



Possibly the greatest football match ever played. I remember being at school about 10 years later and our Wednesday afternoon football session was rained off. So there were 50 or 60 lads with nothing to do. And so our ever-resourceful sports master herded us all into the hall, dug out a projector and cine film of this match and we all watched in awe. Eintracht weren't a bad side but the quality of football played by Madrid was just incredible. And Kenneth Wolstenholme had the job too. We all learnt a lot more that afternoon than we would have done kicking a ball about.

I used to have a few press photos of this game:-

29 years ago (1986/7 season) and a match between Blackpool and Everton for Eamonn O’Keefe’s testimonial.

Eamonn was a real favourite at Bloomfield Road despite only being there a short while. He was a great character and made an impact straightaway, scoring some memorable goals and helping the side to promotion.

The programme is a 40 page issue packed with tributes and photos.

This would've been half hour earlier but when I returned to my PC, Windows 10 was being automatically installed without permission! Googled it on my phone to find that this is happening worldwide, it's their aggressive way of making everyone upgrade if possible. Anyone using Windows 10? If so would you recommend upgrading?

Back to the thread...

18th May 1984

Northern Intermediate League Challenge Cup Final 2nd Leg

Newcastle Utd 1 Leeds United 2

Already leading 4-0 from the first leg Leeds secured the NIL Cup with goals from Scales & Simmonds.

We have now gotten used to winning NIL Cups!! Sad

Single A4 sheet printed on one side only

Autographed by three Aberdeen players (inc. Strachan & Rougvie who had just played their last game for the Dons) as they made their way with the cup on to the team coach afterwards.
