20 April 1907 - Attendance: 84,584
Sheffield Wednesday won the FA Cup for the second time in their history to date, and they did so as underdogs. Everton had lifted the Cup the previous year having beaten Newcastle United 1-0 at Crystal Palace with Young as scorer.
However the Owls went into the game under strengthened. Harry Davis had broken his leg during the third round replay with Sunderland on 27 February, and in his absence led to Harry Chapman taking the right-wing place whilst Frank Bradshaw came in at inside right.
The Merseyside team put the Yorkshire men under pressure early on in the game and hit the woodwork once before Wednesday took the lead on 20 minutes. Chapman and Stewart were involved in the build up to the goal; Scott twice punched clear a cross.
At the third attempt Chapman fired in a shot, which Billy Scott stopped but couldn’t handle and could only watch as the ball trickled over the line with Jimmy Stewart tucked in the make sure.
Wednesday found themselves under a mountain of pressure following their lead, and just on the stroke of half time found the score level as Jack Sharp (see below) squeezed past his marker to fire home.
After that timely goal the game could have gone either way as each side pushed on for a winner. However with just four minutes remaining the Owls found the goal that would take the trophy back to Sheffield.
The goal came from Andrew Wilson’s never-say-die attitude. A long pass down the right hand side looked to be going out of play, but Wilson rushed along to stop it going over the touchline. In one swift movement he swung the ball towards the goal – where George Stewart scuttled along to head the ball into the net.
Tommy Crawshaw, aged 34 was the only survivor the Sheffield Wednesday side that had been in the previous FA Cup side that won in 1896 against Wolverhampton Wanderers (2-1). Crawshaw, happily collected the trophy and will always be remember as the day the Owls confounded the critics as the underdogs won the cup.
It did however proved to be a fantastic moment for Crawshaw in his long career at Wednesday, which spanned fourteen years starting from 1894, in total he made 465 appearances and scored just 27 goals for the Sheffield club.
