Saturday 10 May 1986

So that was it then?  Eleven years of compulsory formal education over.  What's next, some revision for these impending 'O' Levels?  Nah!  That can wait, today is the day of the FA Cup Final.  And it's a Merseyside Derby, the first ever in the FA Cup Final.

The two best teams in the league are facing up in the final showdown.  Liverpool crowned Champions just a week earlier are trying to become only the fourth team to win the League and FA Cup double, following on from Preston North End (1888), Spurs (1961) and Arsenal (1971).  Everton, on the other hand, are trying to ensure that their season which promised so much doesn't end without a trophy.

Gary Lineker had given Everton the lead with a trademark cool finish after Grobbelaar had partly blocked his first effort.  However, as they had done on so many occasions recently, Liverpool were to find that extra gear in the second half to step up and win the game 3-1.  Ian Rush bagged a brace whilst Craig Johnstone became the first Australian to score in an FA Cup final.  So that was it, Liverpool became only the fourth team ever to win the prestigious Leage and FA Cup 'Double'.
