Arsenal 1971 FA Cup Winners Signed Framed Shirt



In the finale to the 1970–71 FA Cup season, the 1971 FA Cup Final was contested by Arsenal and Liverpool at Wembley on 8 May 1971.

Arsenal won 2–1 after extra time, with all three goals coming in the added half-hour. Steve Heighway opened the scoring for Liverpool with a low drive past Wilson on his near post. However, Arsenal equalised with a scrambled goal from substitute Eddie Kelly – the first time a substitute had ever scored in an FA Cup final. The goal was initially credited to George Graham, but opinion is mixed as to whether he touched the ball.[1]

Charlie George then scored a winner late in extra time, when his long range effort went past Ray Clemence.

The game was the second half of Arsenal’s first League and FA Cup double,
