English Leagues the 60s: Leeds Nottingham Forest FA Cup 1967 1968

Elland Road,
Leeds
17th of Febuary 1968
Attendance 51,739

  Most football lovers have an allegiance not just to a club but to a particular team, the sequence of their names hard-wired into the memory, ready to be produced at the appropriate moment. It's a way, not least, of proving one's authenticity: by rolling out the names of Thompson, Whare, McDonald, Burkitt, McKinlay, Whitefoot, Dwight, Quigley, Wilson, Gray and Imlach, I demonstrate my right to be considered a Nottingham Forest fan. But maybe remembering an FA Cup winning team, even one from 1959, is not much more of a feat than reciting the names of Alf Ramsey's England heroes of 1966. So I reinforce my claim by rattling off another XI: Grummitt, Hindley, Winfield, Hennessey, McKinley, Newton, Lyons, Barnwell, Baker, Wignall and Storey-Moore, runners-up in the old First Division in 1966-67, left. And it's amusing to realise that such feats of memory are extended even to the enemies of that era: Sprake, Reaney, Cooper, Bremner, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Clarke, Jones, Giles and Gray.

  1. This is fourth round of FA Cup 1967/68, I think, not the league.
