On this day in football history

  • 1922 In an incredible FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round Replay Dulwich Hamlet finally overcame St Albans City 8-7 in extra time. The score was 3-3 at half time and 6-6 at full time. St Albans City's Minter must have been distraught; he scored all seven of their goals.
  • 1930 Clapton Orient beat Brentford 3-0 in the Division Three South match, with two goals from Cropper and one from Tricker. This was the first League match ever played at Wembley Stadium and special permission was given because Orient's Lea Bridge ground had been deemed to be below League standards. They played one further match at Wembley a fortnight later, which they also won 3-1 against Southend United
  • 1958 George Farm, Blackpool's Scottish international goalkeeper, played in his 450th match for the club in their First Division match against Manchester City. He joined Blackpool in 1948 from Hibernian and played in two Cup Finals in 1951 and 1953 gaining a winner's medal on the second occasion. He went to Queen of the South as player-manager in February 1960 after over 500 appearances for Blackpool (462 in the League). When he hung up his boots in 1963 he had made 544 League appearances. He also played in 10 internationals between 1952 and 1959.
