1920

1920's final at Stamford Bridge saw Aston Villa defeat Huddersfield Town to win their sixth FA Cup - in the first final to be played after the end of WWI. Villa's was an all English team, albeit with Scottish Manager and Villa stalwart, George Ramsay. The only goal of the game was a little farcical, with the ball eventually ending up in the Huddersfield goal courtesy of a deflection off Billy Kirton's face from a corner taken by Arthur Dorrell.

That this happened in the 100th minute was perhaps indicative of a pair of teams who had cancelled each other out, although in truth Villa had been the better, more positive side throughout. Villa's skipper, Andy Ducat - a dual cap for England at both Football and Cricket - went up to collect the Cup from Prince Henry, the younger brother of Edward VIII and George VI. Despite this being Villa's sixth FA Cup win, they were not to win the FA Cup again until 1957.
