1910 FA Cup Replay Match Report
In their fourth FA Cup Final in six years, Newcastle United faced Barnsley, a Second Division club with all of Yorkshire’s dour, fighting qualities.
Yet again, they failed to win at Crystal Palace. However, after a replay at Goodison Park, Everton, the FA Cup was finally taken back to Tyneside.
Barnsley’s rush and bustle had overpowered the artistry of the Newcastle stars for long periods in the first encounter. Barnsley had scored in the first half through inside-left Harry Tuffnell, and it was late in the second period when Jock Rutherford forced home the equalizer.
Newcastle United won a hard-fought replay at Goodison Park on merit. They played well from the start, the forwards working better together than they had ever done in London four days before.
It was the form they had often shown in the League championship but seldom managed to reproduce in the FA Cup Final. In truth, they seemed more at home in the North.
Barnsley themselves played a dashing game, full of enterprise and hard kicking. Their defense performed admirably, particularly the full-backs, giving the opposing wingmen little room to maneuver.
Newcastle United mixed their short game with long, sweeping passes, and with the right-wing pair of Jock Rutherford and James Howie in splendid form, they won deservedly with two goals by center-forward Albert Shepherd.
