For the third time in five years Newcastle United returned to Wembley to seal the FA Cup for a record sixth time in their illustrious history. It was a day full of drama, as Wembley bathed in the May sunshine, and both sets of supporters created an atmosphere that was a wonder to behold.
On the eve of the final, Jackie Milburn is quoted as saying that the match will be "like playing a home tie", and the Newcastle great made no mistake in laying his marker on the game by scoring the fastest FA Cup final goal ever up to that time. It would be a record that he would hold until 1997 when Chelsea's Roberto Di Matteo scored after only 43 seconds to beat Milburn.
The match had barely kicked off when Newcastle United won a corner, and from White's delivery Milburn rose to head home with superb accuracy. The goal was timed at 45 seconds and Newcastle proceeded to dominate the early stages.
With nearly 20 minutes on the clock, City suffered another blow, losing their full-back Meadows, and similar to 1952, Newcastle now faced 10 men. But with their goal keeper Trautmann in inspired form, City held on and began to press forward and against all odds equalised on the stroke of half-time.
But the City resistance was not able to withstand the Newcastle pressure in the second half, and a seven minute spell ensured the Cup would be heading North East. First, Mitchell beat Trautmann to make it two on 53 minutes, and then Hannah added the third after Trautmann had parried from Mitchell.
Remarkably to date, it would be the last time the Club would win the famous cup. So relive this historic day, as we bring you the full 90 minutes for the very first time on DVD, when Newcastle United were the Kings of Wembley.
