m'learned friend, I too was at Highbury that evening. Sadly I was unable to be at Wembley for the Final against Arsenal at which,as the list states, Derek Nippard and Jim Bent made their swansong. I did watch the Final on TV though. Nippard had been a somewhat surprising choice for the Final but I recall he did well enough in a match which had an air of friendliness about it.

And now we return to 1957 and the third tier. Sic transit gloria mundi; and will gloria ever return or has she left us for a long, long time ?
