Re: WORLD CHAMPIONS

JP, thank you for that. Is there an inscription on the little cup? The photograph on the museum`s website just shows "RENTON FC".

ENGLISH CUP

A common "fact" about the English Cup is that when Wanderers won it for the third time in succession in 1878 and therefore under the rules at the time could keep it they offered to give it back to the FA on the proviso that this rule be obliterated. Almost every newspaper match report states that th...

I have this game played @ Newmarket Park. Do you have the NZU23 team from 5/6/67? THAT game was played on the Lower Hutt Recreation Ground.

Re: Missed penalties for Scotland

Frank Haffey SAVED one taken by Bobby Charlton @ Hampden 1960 then threw the ball into the net when referee ordered retake because Eric Caldow had encroached. Charlton put the second try wide of Haffey`s right hand but also past the post.

Re: 1884 Scottish Cup winners
