At the time of their Final against Manchester City, Everton were at their very best. Promoted to the First Division in 1931 and League champions in the following year, they were now Cup‑winners for the second time.


Dean scores. Note the number 22, the first final where numbers were worn


Everton's Cresswell had won his first England cap as far back as 1921, and yet still managed to stroll through the hardest match. Dean was a great centre‑forward ‑ his haul of sixty goals in the First Division in the 1927‑8 season still stands as a League record.


Everton took control after City's opening series of attacks, and goals by Stein, Dean and Dunn gave them a victory that was emphatic and undisputed in a Final notably uneventful, judged by normal Wembley standards. Two of Everton's goals were the result of misjudgement on the part of City's goalkeeper Langford, who had kept too close to his line and failed to cut out most of the crosses to the immortal 'Dixie', but there were no sensations this year, no sudden twist or hectic finish.


For the first time the players 'shirts were numbered from 1 to 22 ‑and City were the high‑numbered also‑rans.
