THE FA CUP

 

                     

     The two FA Cup trophies used in the competition. The third version of the current trophy was lifted in the 2013-14 season's final.

 

 There have been 5 FA Cup trophies two of the first and 3 of the existing design. The first was in use between 1872 and 1895. Following Aston Villa's win in the competition that season, it was put on display in the shop window of William Shilcock in Birmingham, a football and boot manufacturer. Although a £10 reward was offered to anyone would could recover the cup, it was never seen again.

 

The replica trophy was used between 1895 and 1911 when it was replaced as it had become known that other replicas were in existence and being used for other competitions. This was presented to Lord Kinnaird in 1911 to commemorate his 21st anniversary as president of the Football Association. This particular trophy is now housed at the National Football Museum in Manchester.

 

The third trophy which is that shown on the left was used until the Cup final of 1990-91. It remains at the FA headquarters at Soho Square. The replacement was in exactly the same style and was used from the 1991-92 final to the 2012-13 final.

 

The BBC are currently showing 50 iconic FA Cup goals in the run-up to the 1st round proper for the 2014-15 competition plus a selection of those classic matches recently together with a look back at some old 3rd round ties. The Daily Mail have also taken a look back at some of the iconic replays of the past and a look at the 1963 competition.

 

The Guardian are also taking a trip down memory lane as well.
