Gallery: 1953 FA Cup Success

Historic Images From Blackpool's Famous Triumph

4 November 2019

It was third time lucky for Blackpool in 1953, as the Seasiders finally lifted the FA Cup at Wembley.

Widely regarded as 'The Matthews Final', the match saw Pool's Wizard of the Dribble help Joe Smith's side record a 4-3 victory against Bolton Wanderers.

Stan Mortensen scored the only hat-trick to be scored in an FA Cup final at Wembley, while Bill Perry hit what proved to be the winner. 

Take a look back at some of these nostalgic pics in our gallery, as we prepare for the 2019/20 FA Cup campaign to get underway against Morecambe on Saturday
