The 1895 FA Cup final at Crystal Palace


April 20, 1895
“Just before half-time, after a fierce bully of the ball, Jack Devey, the centre forward of the Villa, and Tom Higgins, the West Bromwich half-back, came violently into collision. Both of them reeled back with their hands to their heads, and, after swaying about for a moment, Higgins suddenly sat down.”
(The Graphic, London: April 27, 1895)
