Note:  The First Round matches Everton v Burnley, Stoke v Casuals, Sunderland v Notts County, Sunderland Albion v Birmingham St Georges, Sheffield Wednesday v Bolton Wanderers and the Second Round match between Accrington and Sunderland were ordered to be replayed by the FA after protests were made.

The First Round tie between Preston and Middlesbrough Ironopolis played on January 16th was not considered by the referee to have been an FA Cup tie! The match was played in atrocious weather conditions (note the other matches played that day that ended up with protested results) and the referee, a Mr Fox, had refused to confirm before the start if the match was being played as a cup-tie. With the score level at 2-2 after 90 minutes Ironopolis wanted to play extra time but the referee then declared the match as a friendly. The Northern League side were a tad displeased and tried to get the re-arranged fixture played in Middlesbrough. That was not to be and Preston won 6-0 at Deepdale a week after the first match.

Small Heath (now Birmingham City) were drawn to play Sheffield Wednesday at home (which was then Muntz Street) but the tie was switched to Sheffield when Wednesday offered ?200 for a switch of venue. Soon after the match kicked off at Owlerton there were crowd disturbances and Sheffield Wednesday later received a 14 day ground closure by the FA as a punishment.

 

 

Question:
'Wayne Rooney's on a hundred grand a week. Mind you, so was I until the police found my printing machine.' That's a favourite after-dinner joke given by a former Welsh international who played for Manchester United in an FA Cup final before being sentenced to 18 months in prison for his part in a counterfeit currency scam. Who?
