Wembley’s first Final was played on 28 April 1923. Before the match a crowd of 100,000 outside the stadium rushed the gates, burst the barriers, and swarmed on to the field of play. In all about 200,000 people a record football crowd squeezed into a space supposed to accommodate 127,000.

Chaos reigned throughout the game, It took virtually an hour for mounted police to clear the pitch so that the game could begin., and it was virtually impossible to observe the rules of the game. When a player took a corner kick, for example, the crowd were so close up to the touch line that he could not take his run until policemen had forced people away from the corner of the field.

The first ever Wembley FA Cup Final goal came after just two minutes of the delayed start, and it was David Jack of Bolton who was the scorer.

When half time came neither side were able to leave the field, and eight minutes after the interval Bolton scored a second. J. R. Smith, Bolton’s centre forward, who was the only Scotsman on the pitch.
