    Classic Cup Finals: 1927
    Friday, 09 May 2003.

    TheFA.com continues to look back on classic FA Cup Finals of the past, today looking at Cardiff City's win over Arsenal back in 1927. The Welshmen's victory is still the only time that a team outside of England has carried away the famous trophy...

    Cardiff City 1-0 Arsenal
    The FA Cup Final
    Wembley Stadium
    Saturday 23 April 1927

    Arsenal, under the magic touch of Herbert Chapman, were captained by the famous Charles Buchan and had other star players in Hulme, Parker and John. Cardiff City, with practically the same defence as that of the 1925 Final but now with a new forward line, were at the peak of their powers.

    For Arsenal, however, only Buchan lived up to his reputation, setting up at least three clear chances for his colleagues. The Welsh supporters massed on the Wembley banks had little to sing about, with both defences well in command and play for the most part incoherent. Then, out of the blue, the decisive goal came in the seventy third minute.

    Following a Cardiff throw-in, Ferguson tried a hurried shot at goal before he could be tackled. His drive was a hard one, low and diagonal, but Lewis, Arsenal's Welsh international goalkeeper, appeared to have it covered. However, with Davies and Irving challenging, the ball somehow twisted on Lewis' chest and trickled sowly over the line.

    It was a classic example of the kind of luck that can win or lose a Final. Fred Keenor and his men went on to take the Cup, and the trophy went out of England for the first time.

    Teams:

    Cardiff City: Farquharson; Nelson, Watson; Keenor, Sloan, Hardy; Curtis, Irving, Ferguson, Davies L., M'Laclan

    Goals: Ferguson 74

    Arsenal: Lewis; Parker, Kennedy; Baker, Butler, John; Hulme, Buchan, Brain, Blyth, Hoar

    Referee: WF Bunnell (

    Agreed about the keeper. Talk about indecision. Apart from him, Cardiff are looking good - still think they might take this, despite the half-time score.

    I think theres still a bit of life in Cardiff.. If they can score early in the second half they might give pompey a game.. If not they might tire and have a bit of a panning.. Hope not..
