WILLIAM EDWARDS makes his Hammers debut against CRYSTAL PALACE

ALBERT FLETCHER makes his Hammers debut against FULHAM at Craven Cottage

The White Horse Final - An estimated 200,000 attend first and last ever pay at the gate Wembley Final, a white horse is needed to clear the playing area of spectators. West Ham United featured in its first major final - and the first FA Cup final to be played at Wembley - on this day in 1923. A goal in each half was to break the hearts the Hammers, who reached the showpiece occasion less than a quarter of a century after their formation. The match was the first to be played at the new Empire Stadium, which would soon become better known as Wembley, and was such a sought-after ticket in the capital that many more than the 127,000 capacity crowd crammed into the venue. So many supporters had forced their way in that police on horseback were needed to quell the crowds and push them away from the touchlines. Chief among them was PC George Scorey on his horse Billie and his contribution has gone down in English Football history - leading to the new White Horse Bridge at the revamped Wembley being named in his honour. The match had been delayed by 45 minutes but once David Jack struck after just two minutes, West Ham were always chasing the contest and it was the north-west club who lifted the trophy.

JOHNNY CARROLL (1948-1949) Born this day Limerick, Republic of Ireland

 

One of the lesser-known of the considerable Irish contingent in the immediate post-war period at Upton Park, this centre-forward joined the club at the same time as fellow compatriots Danny McGowan and Fred Kearns. Signed from Limerick, he made his League debut against Sheffield Wednesday at Upton Park in a 2-2 draw on the 30 August 1948. He made another four Second Division appearances in season 1948-49, without managing to get his name on the scoresheet.
