    Background: Soccer -- and Ipswich Town won the coveted Football Association Cup in London on Saturday (6 May) when they defeated Arsenal one goal to nil. The match -- the high point of the English football season -- produced fluid entertaining football with Ipswich going close to scoring on several occasions before Osborne netted the winner 13 minutes from the end.

    SYNOPSIS: The match was only 12 minutes old when Ipswich, in the dark shirts, split the Arsenal defence and only the crossbar prevented them from scoring.

    Arsenal's Irish international goalkeeper Pat Jennings foiled another attack.

    Arsenal, playing their ninth final, had been widely tipped to win. But their attacks lacked real penetration and they rarely looked like beating Copper in the Ipswich goal.

    Just before half-time, Pat Jennings did well to push a header from Kevin Beattie over the bar.

    In the second half Ipswich countered Arsenal's few attacks and looked dangerous up front....number nine Paul Mariner shot just wide on this occasion.

    Arsenal's number five, David O'Leary -- a Republic of Ireland international -- was one of their more purposeful players. Cooper coming off his line fast blocked Sunderland's shot. It was Cooper again who foiled Arsenal's next attack when he plucked Hudson's cross out of the air.

    Ipswich on the attack again and only the post prevents John Wark from scoring.

    Minutes later Ipswich nearly broke the deadlock. Woods' cross was squarely met by full-back Burley whose header looked every inch a goal until Jennings pulled off a spectacular save.

    In the 77th minute the goal eventually came. Geddis, on the right, teased the Arsenal defence. His low cross was only half cleared by Willie Young, and there was Osborne to put it in the net.

    The final score, victory for Ipswich, on their first appearance in a Wembley final.
