1968 FA Cup Final

West Bromwich Albion : Osborne, Frazer, Williams, Brown, Talbut, Kaye (Clarke), Lovett, Collard, Astle, Hope, Clark



Everton : West, Wright, Wilson, Kendall, Labone, Harvey, Husband, Ball, Royle, Hurst, Morrissey.

It was a rugged first half, Lovett of West Bromwich Albion had a glorious chance but was to slow to put it away, and at the other end Everton had a few chances though all failed to score.

Everton were the better organised side, but overall both teams were very defensive and afraid in case they made a mistake that cost them the cup.
With the score still at 0-0 and only 5 minutes left on the clock had a great chance to seal the victory but for Jimmy Husband header to just go over the crossbar. So extra-time was needed.

The extra time period was just 3 minutes old when Jeff Astle of West Bromwich Albion fired in a right-footed shot towards the Everton goal only for Colin Harvey to block it, the rebound came back to Jeff Astle who then fired it left-footed into the top corner, for the remainder of the extra-time West Bromwich Albion managed to hold on to the slender lead.
Jeff Astle goal in the final meant that he is one of the few players to have scored at least one goal in each round of the FA Cup.

Below is some video footage of the 1968 FA Cup Final.
