6 of the Blackpool line-up had appeared in the FA Cup Final of 1948. Blackpool had the better of Newcastle in the first twenty minutes, with Stanley Matthews outshining everyone on the pitch but his Blackpool team-mates could not capitalise on his superiority. with the second half only five minutes old Jackie Milburn collected a George Robeldo long pass and with a left footed shot scored. Moments later Jackie Milburn doubled the lead when Ernie Taylor back-heeled the ball to a waiting Milburn who shot goalwards for the ball to end up in the top right hand corner of the net. This was one of the best ever goals scored at a Wembley FA Cup Final.

The Newcastle players were only on £12 each for the final, which was less than the band members of the Coldstream Guards
