United played in a white strip with a red chevron.


The toss, the captains were the two great centre halves, Charlie Roberts and Billy Wedlock. Referee Mr Jim Mason.


A great view of Crystal Palace as the game gets underway. Note the 2-3-5 formations.


 Sandy Turnbull scores for United. Turnbull was later implicated in the 1915 Betting Scandal and was  banned for life from football. Turnbull was killed in action in Arras (1917). His life ban was posthumously rescinded by the Football Association in 1919 (!).
