FA Cup Final 1912

at The Crystal Palace. April 20th 1912

FA Cup Final 1912 at The Crystal Palace.

April 20th 1912

Att 55,213

Pearson, Cook, Pennington, Baddeley, Buck, McNeal, Jephcot, Wright, Pailor, Bowser, Shearman,

The crowd that assembled to watch the 1912 FA Cup Final was some 15-20,000 smaller than previous years but they still filled the ground and there was little spare space. Some spectators took to the trees around the ground and a group of Albion supporters tried to launch a blue and white striped hot air balloon but it burned before it left the ground. This failed stunt became a metaphor for a game that also failed to rise to meet the spectator's expectations.Barnsley did not play an exciting game of football; relying on their half backs to run alongside the Albion forwards making the Albion game of pass and return between their forwards and half backs too dangerous.

Barnsley then tried to score on the break. But the Albion backs, lead by Pennington, were able to contain the threat. This lead to a stalemate with Albion unable to play their normal game and Barnsley unable to push their advantage.Albion had a couple of chances early in the first half when Cooper, the Barnsley goalkeeper, fumbled a shot from Baddeley but he did not have any support. Cooper was again tested when Jephcott centered the ball several times but again Albion did not press home the advantage. Barnsley had similar problems exploiting an advantage when Tufnell and Bartrop got through unmarked on the right wing. The Manchester Guardian felt that Albion had the better run of play in the first half but by the end of the second half felt the teams were evenly matched. There were some exciting moments towards the end. The first came when Pearson, the Albion goalkeeper mishandled a centering pass from Moore and Barnsley managed two shots the first rebounding from an Albion player, the second from the woodwork. Moments from the end of the match Buck had his best chance but hit the goal post. The third drawn FA Cup Final in as many years drew aggravated comments from the departing crowds.

The Manchester Guardian felt the best players were the backs and half backs on each side, singling out Pennington and Buck on the Albion side for praise and Downs along with Glendinning for Barnsley. They also felt that Jephcott, the Albion wing had had a good match, with several good centering passes.

 

FA Cup Final Replay 1912 at Sheffield

 April 24th 1912

Att 38,555

 Pearson, Cook, Pennington, Baddeley, Buck, McNeal, Jephcot, Wright, Pailor, Bowser, Shearman,

Albion's run in the cup, combined with several postponements from the early part of the season, meant that they were forced to play seven games in ten days at the end of the campaign. This included an away match at Everton on 22 April, in-between the final and the replay. Albion lost the match 3-0 with a reserve side and were fined £150 by The Football League for fielding a weakened team, although nine of the eleven players had previously played in the league for the first team.

To the frustration of the supporters the play during the replay was not much better than the original match. Albion tactics had improved and they had the better of the play through most of the match but they failed to take their chances when they were presented. Pailor and Shearman missed a centering pass provided by Jephcott. Later in the second half Pailor almost got a shot past Cooper who failed to control the ball, Glendinning saved the situation for Barnsley by kicking the ball into touch. Barnsley also tested the Albion goal, mainly Bartrop on the right wing. One of his shots in the first half had to be cleared off the line by Baddeley after Pearson fumbled the save. As the game run into extra time the Guardian commented that given the sunny and hot conditions the energy of the players was impressive and the pace of the game picked up. Apart from a brief attack on their goal by Travers and Moore the play was all with Albion until the last two minutes of extra time. Glendinning dribbled the ball out of a ruck in the Barnsley half and passed the ball to Tufnell who was on the half way line. Pennington, who had had an otherwise flawless game, was bypassed as Tufnell kicked the ball past Pennington's right and then ran around his left side. Cook and Buck seeing the danger ran back, but they were too late.

Within a few seconds Tufnell was in front of the goal. Pearson came off his line to narrow the angle and stamped his feet as he waited for the shot. Despite the pressure on him Tufnell's shot was perfect; fast, low and out of Parsons reach, it found the corner of the net. The Barnsley players hugged and kissed Tufnell as they celebrated his goal knowing that they could hold on for the final 2 minutes. The gate receipts for the replay were £2615 and a collection was held for the Titanic Disaster Fund which received a total of £49 1s 2d. The players travelled by motor back to Barnsley and were cheered through the streets of Sheffield as the held the cup to show the crowd. They arrived in Barnsley in the early evening to a great welcome. In discussing the players the Guardian praised the Barnsley backs of Taylor & Downs, though Pennington for Albion also played well. Of the half backs Glendinning of Barnsley and McNeal from Albion judged to be the best on the day. When considering the Albion forwards Shearman, Bowser and Jephcott were praised but Pailor in the centre had not made the best of the supply of crosses. Of the Barnsley forwards Bartrop and Travers were the best.
