For the second time in the 70's the FA Cup final witnessed another David versus Goliath contest, as Lawrie McMenemy's second division Southampton faced the might of Tommy Docherty's Manchester United beneath the twin towers, and just like 1973, Wembley would observe another Cup upset.
It was a day to cherish for all Saints fans, as they defied the formbooks to record one of the greatest days in the Club's history and take the FA Cup home for the very first time.
United, as expected, began confidently, carving out the better opportunities of the first half. But a series of missed chances and fine saves from Tuner in the Southampton goal kept the scoreline level, and as the match developed the Saints grew in confidence.
The deciding moment came with only seven minutes remaining, when Bobby Stokes, who had just missed an earlier opportunity, raced onto a superb through ball from McCalliog and placed his shot past Stepney, to spark euphoric celebrations.
It was the start of a long hot summer and Southampton had clinched the FA Cup on an unforgettable May afternoon. So step back in time and enjoy this memorable final over again along with all the post-match reaction.
