Wolves came to Wembley the hottest favourites for the Cup since Huddersfield faced Blackburn in 1928. Built round their great centre half Stan Cullis, they were a brilliant and youthful side. Wolves were lying second in the League, whereas Portsmouth were struggling in the relegation danger zone.
The form book was forgotten as Pompey produced a controlled display for a famous win!
Barlow, who had actually begun the season as a Wolves player, scored Portsmouth's first goal and was their ace in the pack after that. Anderson added a second before half time after McAlinden's chip from the right had left the advancing Scott in no man's land.
Immediately after the interval Scott fumbled a shot on the goal line and had to stretch out an arm and place a hand on the ball to keep it in play. Parker, dashing in from the left wing, audaciously kicked the ball from under Scott's hand and into the net.
Portsmouth were now home and dry with a three goal lead. Dorsett got one back for Wolves, but Worrall, with a lucky sixpence in his boot, capped a great exhibition of wing play by centring perfectly for Parker to run in and head home Portsmouth's fourth.
The victory meant Pompey hold the dubious distinction of holding the FA Cup for the longest period as the trophy wasn't contested again until the 1945/46 season due to the competition being suspended during the durasion of World War II!
