1922 FA Cup Final
|Event||1921–22 FA Cup|
|Date||29 April 1922|
|Venue||Stamford Bridge, London|
|Referee||J.W.P. Fowler (Sunderland)|
This was the last final before the opening of Wembley Stadium, and was also Huddersfield's first and only FA Cup triumph. Preston goalkeeper James Mitchell was the first (and only) player ever to wear spectacles in an FA Cup Final. This was the first final to be decided by a penalty kick and the award of it was controversial, confirmed by newsreel footage, that the foul had occurred outside the penalty area.
