    The match wasn't played at Upton Park. It was played on 14th January 1933. Corinthians played at either Crystal Palace, Queens Club or Leyton in those days. West Ham went on to reach the semi-final, played at Molineaux, where they lost 2-1 to Everton. Hammers were a 2nd Division club at the time
