Product description


A priceless journey down memory lane guided by the stars who helped make each game so memorable. In addition there is a comprehensive page of statistics about each final and if all that isn't enough there is a last ever interview with Everton legend Brian Labone who recalls the winning the FA Cup as the Toffees beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 in the 1966 final --- Nathan Davies, The Association of Football Statisticians.

There's a lot of proper football in David Saffer's diverting collection of reminiscences --- Kevin Mitchell, The Observer.


To celebrate the return of the FA Cup Final to its rightful home at Wembley Stadium, "Know The Score Books" is proud to publish the first book in a series featuring unique and revealing interviews with a member of the winning side from each of the glorious FA Cup winning teams since that magical 'Matthews Final' of 1953. FA Cup legends such as Bill Perry (scorer of the winning goal in that Final), Bert Trautmann (who helped Man City win the Cup in 1956 with a broken neck), Peter McParland (whose two goals won the 1957 FA Cup for Aston Villa against all the odds), Dave Mackay (who captained Spurs to the first double of the twentieth century in 1961), Ian Callaghan (who set up the goal that won Liverpool their first ever FA Cup in 1965) and Pat Jennings (who won the first of his FA Cup winners' medals with Spurs in the first ever all-London final of 1967). The book also contains the last ever interview with Everton captain Brian Labone, who died at the age of 66 shortly after completing his piece on the Toffees' 1966 Cup final victory. All these and more are to be found in this incredible new book.

"Match of My Life - FA Cup Finals 1953-1969" is the first of three volumes which celebrate the return of the FA Cup to its spiritual home. This series of books will help rekindle that old Wembley magic and allow fans to relive some of the greatest moments football has ever witnessed. Each player's personal account is full of new revelations and unique insight making "Match of My Life - FA Cup Finals 1953-1969" the definitive book with which fans can relive the first half century of the biggest club competition in the world.
