In 1906 Everton F C succeeded in winning the FA Cup, this being their third appearance in the final. In a somewhat uneventful game they beat Newcastle United 1-0 with a 77th minute goal from Alex 'Sandy' Young. The match was played in front of 75,609 spectators at Crystal Palace. Their names are now largely forgotten by all but the most ardent Evertonians yet there are some fascinating stories to be discovered and insights into a world of professional sport far removed from today's Premier League.
