032 – 1930 FA Cup Final (part two)

Today’s scans are 3 items from after the final. Again sadly no details on the back of the press photo’s but they’re pretty self-explanatory.

The first one was the ‘homecoming’ when the team displayed the trophy at Islington Town Hall, something that would become a habit. The second one of the cup on display was, I believe, the window of the club’s official photographers of the day, Lambert and Jackson. The teamgroup was an insert in a programme early the next season and finally a clip of our opening game of the following season when the cup was carried round the pitch.

003 – Winning a Trophy

In 1889/90 Royal Arsenal entered the FA Cup (in the qualifying rounds) for the first time.  As well as that we won our first competitions.

We won the Kent Senior Cup (beating Thanet 3-0) and the Kent Junior Cup.  Old Westministers beat us 1-0 in the final of the London Cup before we got our revenge by beating them 3-1 to win the London Charity Cup.  The cutting above is scanned from the Daily Graphic of April 7th, 1890.
