The Cup stayed in Yorkshire for another season as Second Division Barnsley, losing finalists in 1910, beat West Bromwich Albion after a draw in the first match at Crystal Palace. It was the third year running that the Final had been drawn, strange when one realizes that it was to be fifty eight years before it was drawn again.
In the second game in Sheffield, the score sheet was still blank at the end of normal time. Two minutes from the end of extra time. Glendinning, the Barnsley right half, beat two opponents and pushed a pass forward to Tuffnell, his inside-right. Away he went on a long dribble through the Albion ranks, finally evading defenders Pennington and Cook to put a fast ground shot past Pearson.
By their victory Barnsley became the third team from the Second Division to lift the Cup. They won it because of their stamina throughout the competition - their fourth round tie with Bradford City, for example, had been a four game marathon lasting seven hours - and a superb defence conceding just four goals in twelve matches.
What Albion goalkeeper Hubert Pearson failed to achieve that day, his son Harold gained some twenty years later as Albion's goalkeeper when they beat Birmingham at Wembley in 1931.
