    Default Football trivia

    name one person (I believe there have only been two) who played full time in an FA Cup final, his team won the FA cup, but he didn't get a winner's medal. Who was he, what was his team and what were the circumstances?

    also
    what team last won the English FA cup?

    also
    name a rule related to the nature of the team kit

    also
    what is the oldest FA team in the World?

    Kevin Moran, 1985. First man sent off in a cup final. That said, he was later presented the medal after the FA had at first refused. Thinking about it, he was sent off late in the second half. It'll be someone stretchered off in extra time then. I'll have to have a think.

    Which English FA Cup? The one that Chelsea won last May or a different one?

    Team kit must be easily distinguishable from the opposing team's kit and that of the match officials.

    Gary Sprake for Leeds. Played full time at Wembley, match drawn. Didn't play in the reply.

    Cardiff City were the last winners of the English FA Cup. They dropped the English part after.

    One more, the goal keeper must have a different kit from the rest of his team

    Well done. I was at their 125 year celebrations in 1977. So that makes them formed in 1852.

    Ah, in terms of the first one, that will also apply to Jim Leighton, who was dropped in favour of the late Les Sealey in the 1990 final, with Les making a beeline for Leighton and offering him his winner's medal.

    well, not quite the same as Sprake. He played full time and extra time at Wembley, but didn't play in the replay. At that time, winner's medals were only awarded for the winning game. I gather this has been changed now.

    That's the same as Leighton. He played in the 3-3 draw v Palace with Sealey playing in the replay.

    OK, I thought there had been another similar situation.

    Leighton only played one more game for United, a League Cup tie against Halifax later that year. Thank God.
