FA Cup Final 1927: Cardiff City 1-0 Arsenal
Wembley Stadium: Saturday 23rd April
Cardiff City 1-0 Arsenal
CC: Farquharson, Nelson, Watson, Keenor, Sloan, Hardy, Curtis, Irving, Ferguson, Davies, McLachlan.
AR: Lewis, Parker, Kennedy, Baker, Butler, John, Hulme, Buchan, Brain, Blyth, Hoar.
Referee: W F Bunnell Attendance: 91,206
Arsenal, now 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, with practically the same defence as in 1925 but now with a new forward?line, were at the peak of their fame.
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 his chest and trickled slowly 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.
