Despite the biting wind there was an attendance of 8,000 to see the Final of the London Challenge Cup played under the Upton Park floodlights, and they were rewarded with a game of fast exchanges in which each side in turn had their full share of the play. The first goal came after six minutes; Brian Rhodes punched out the ball from a bunch of players as it was lofted into the goalmouth, and before our defence had time to recover Ray Swallow fastened on to the clearance and banged home a shot along the ground from the edge of the penalty-box. Just under half-an-hour's play had passed when we drew level, Doug Wragg finding the top corner of the net with a left-foot shot on the turn from the corner of the area. The second half opened with the teams level at 1-1, but indications were that the Hammers looked like gaining the ascendancy. However, a freak goal once more put the Gunners ahead in the 60th minute; Swallow punted down the middle, and although Rhodes had it covered all the way the ball struck Derek Tapscott in the back and diverted itself into the corner of our net. We promptly returned to the attack, but with eleven minutes left for play the issue was decided through another mishap; two of our defenders collided about 25 yards out and the ball rolled loose for Swallow to run on and make it 3-1. The score remained that way at the final whistle, leaving Arsenal as winners of the trophy for the eighth time.
