A fair mix up in goal
Looking at this illustration made me think of some comments on the modern game: All that pushing and shoving at corners is a disgrace... If you so much as touch the goalie it's a foul... A fair mix up in goal , which shows the first round FA Cup tie played at the Manor Ground on January 27th 1894, looks like something from Twickenham. Fair play to the Wednesday keeper, Bill Allan, for getting a punch in.
Wednesday won 2-1 thanks to 2 goals from Fred Spiksley, Elliot getting Arsenal's goal.
Interesting to see the use of Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday. One a contraction and the other an elaboration. The Wednesday only added Sheffield in 1929 whilst Arsenal were known as Woolwich Arsenal until 1914 and The Arsenal up to 1919.
