  • 05/25/17--14:54: FA Cup Final 1903

  • This is one of those records that I don't think we'll see beaten; the most onesided FA Cup Final.
    It was a case of one game too many for Derby, who were hampered by injuries. Most significantly Steve Bloomer was absent, whilst  Fryer, Morris and Goodall all came into the final carrying knocks.
    The relative strengths of these two sides can be judged from the fact that they finished the 1902-03 League season level on points (in 8th & 9th places)
    Bury reached the final without conceding a single goal.


    Derby Daily Telegraph

    Both teams wore change colours, Bury sky blue and Derby County red.

    Derby goalkeeper Fryer sustained a further injury in the 1st half and was incapacitated altogether soon after the break. Bury's 2nd goal in the 49th minute was a significant turning point. Fryer went off after colliding with Sagar as the latter scored. Morris went into goal and Derby played 1-3-5. Under the rules of the day this created an effective offside trap, but Bury soon overcame this inconvenience. Fryer returned with the score at 3-0  but conceded twice in rapid succession and left the field permanently after the 5th goal.
    The Sheffield Independent described the match as '(the) worst final. tame and dull', commenting on the  subdued atmosphere in the 1st half, the pessimism of the Derby fans and the fact that thousands of spectators were leaving the ground after 70 minutes.
    Other accounts portray Derby as being anxious, lacklustre, and showing poor ball control. 


    Fryer

    This was Fryer's last game for Derby, who signed Grimsby Town's Walter Whittaker the week after the Final. It was ultimately Harry Maskrey, however, who became Fryer's long term replacement, going on to play 223 matches for County.
    Fryer, a big man for the times at  6 ft 1 and  15 st (1.85, 95kg) moved to Fulham that May.

    King George V was the first reigning monarch to attend an FA Cup Final (1914). He put in a number of appearances during his 26 years on the throne.
    His presence at the Wembley fiasco in 1923 was said to have contributed to the relative restraint demonstrated by the 200,000 plus crowd.

    Manchester United, 1909

    Blackburn Rovers, 1928

    As the first non-metropolitan team to triumph in the FA Cup it is unsurprising that Blackburn Olympic were also the first to be feted on their return 'home'.
    The tradition endures, although the brake pulled by a team of 4 greys is sadly no longer a feature.

    From their foundation in 1901 until 1905 Club Atlético River Plate wore white jerseys. Their iconic red band first appeared in 1905, but in 1909 was replaced by red and white vertical stripes. This was the home strip until 1932, when the red band reappeared.

    Leen Vente (Leendert Roelof Jan Vente) was an inside forward.

    10 of Vente's 21 Netherlands appearances came during 'our' era (pre July 1937). In these games he scored 10 goals, including 5 in his second appearance, a 9-3 win over Belgium. 
    He moved from Neptunus to Feyenoord in 1936 and scored the first ever goal at De Kuip (Stadion Feijenoord).

  • 06/13/17--00:04: Donald Simpson Bell V.C

  • Full back Donald Bell was on the books at Newcastle United as an amateur in 1910-11 but didn't make a first team appearance.
    In 1913 he made his League debut for Bradford Park Avenue. He made 5 appearances for the club.
    In 1916 2nd Lt. Bell was awarded the Victoria Cross. He was killed in action 5 days later.

    London Gazette Notice of Death 9th September 1916Temp. 2nd Lt. Donald Simpson Bell, late York. R. For most conspicuous bravery. During an attack a very heavy enfilade fire was opened on the attacking company by a hostile -machine gun. 2nd Lt. Bell immediately, and on his own initiative, crept up a communication trench and then, followed by Corpl. Colwill and Pte. Batey, rushed across the open under very heavy fire and attacked the machine gun,, shooting the firer with his revolver, and ‘destroying gun and personnel with bombs. This very brave act saved many lives and -ensured the success of the attack. Five days later this gallant officer lost his life performing a very similar act of bravery.

     27.05.30  China 5-0 Philippines

     Japan conceded the final match rather than play extra time. China were therefore the champions.
