Arrangements for the FA Cup final

March 24, 1893
The arrangements for the match at Fallowfield, Manchester, tomorrow, between Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers, are of a most complete character, and reflect the greatest credit upon Mr. John James Bentley and his colleagues, who have the matter in hand. So far as the ground itself is concerned, special care has been taken with regard to the provision of extra exists, and these have been so arranged that it will be possible to leave after the match from every corner of the ground.

By these means, and with the exercise of care by those present, there should not be any unseemly crowding at the finish. He stand accommodation, which runs the length of the field on both sides of the ground will give a fine sight to those lucky enough to get possession. There will be ample provision in the way of conveyances, as the Manchester Carriage Company will be running extra vehicles, and opposition buses are certain to be plentiful.

Visitors to Manchester arriving at the Central and London Road Stations can book thence to Fallowfield, and those coming in at Exchange and Victoria Stations will find a good supply of buses and trams running from market-street, starting from the Exchange and the Infirmary.

The great match will be preceded by a contest between the schoolboys of Manchester and Sheffield, this commencing at two o’clock and acting as a kind of curtain raiser.
