1897 FA Cup Final Wikipedia
The 1897 FA Cup Final was contested by Aston Villa and Everton at Crystal Palace. Aston Villa won 3–2, with goals by John Campbell, Fred Wheldon and Jimmy Crabtree. Everton's goals came from Jack Bell and Dickie Boyle.
With results elsewhere going their way, Villa confirmed their status as League champions on this day. This makes them the only team to date to achieve the league and cup "double" on the same day.
