Footnotes

  • The 1956 final was contested between Manchester City and Birmingham City at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 5th of May 1956. Birmingham became the first team to reach an F.A. Cup final without playing at home. Manchester City took an early lead through Joe Hayes, but Noel Kinsey equalised midway through the first half. Second half goals from Jack Dyson and Bobby Johnstone gave Manchester City a 3–1 victory. The match is best remembered for the heroics of Manchester City goalkeeper, Bert Trautmann, who continued playing despite breaking a bone in his neck.
