After 95 years of FA Cup history, the final eventually played host to an all London affair, as Spurs chased an incredible 5th and Chelsea were still searching for that inaugural 1st. Having endured differing seasons, Spurs had enjoyed their best finish since 1963, whereas Chelsea had suffered their worst.
It was to be a much anticipated affair, as emotions ran high and loyalty held firm. Spurs were favourites, and the match went according to form, as they effectively controlled the whole game from the very start, and maybe should have won by more than the single goal shows.
As halftime approached, and the match still goalless, the breakthrough eventually came. Alan Mullery unleashed a shot from outside of the box that struck Ron Harris and fell perfectly for Jimmy Robertson, who made no mistake by firing his shot past Bonetti, and Spurs had the lead they deserved.
As the 2nd half continued along the same lines as the 1st, it came as no surprise when Spurs doubled their advantage to all but secure another FA Cup triumph. It came in the 68th minute, when goalscorer turned provider, and Jimmy Robertson fed Frank Saul, who turned swiftly to beat Bonetti, and how one half of Wembley celebrated.
Chelsea pulled one back with four minutes remaining, but it proved little more than a consolation, and for all Spurs dominance the scoreline ultimately flattered Chelsea, as the Cup headed back to White Hart Lane for a third time in the decade.
So now relive once again the first all London FA Cup Final, when Spurs emerged victorious in this specially produced extended highlights programme that encapsulates all of the emotions from the day.
