Footnotes

  • The 1923 F.A .Cup Final was the first to be held at Wembley, contested by Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United on 28 April 1923. The final was preceded by chaotic scenes as vast crowds surged into the stadium, far exceeding its official capacity and the terraces overflowed, with the result that spectators were forced onto the playing area itself. Mounted policemen, including one on a white horse had to be brought in to clear the crowds from the pitch to allow the match to take place. Bolton won 2–0. The match is often referred to as the "White Horse Final" and is commemorated by the White Horse Bridge at the new Wembley Stadium.
