1890 FA Cup Final Wikipedia
The 1890 FA Cup Final was contested by Blackburn Rovers and The Wednesday at the Kennington Oval. Blackburn won 6–1, with goals from William Townley (3), Nat Walton, Jack Southworth and Joe Lofthouse. The Wednesday's goal was scored by Albert Mumford. Townley's hat-trick was the first in an FA Cup Final. This was the last of seven consecutive and eight total finals refereed by Major Francis Marindin.
Haydn Arthur Morley, who was Wednesday's captain in the final, earned his living as a solicitor. This was the seventh, and last, final in a row that had been officiated by Major Francis Marindin of the Royal Engineers and veteran of the Crimean War.
