Blackburn Olympic

Winners 1883

The first Northern, none Ex Public School team to lift the FA Cup. Made up af factory workers, they were the first team to train for Cup matches. Their success was actually their downfall as their best players were poached by local rivals and they folded in 1889.

This was the last Final that any Ex Public School team reached (Old Etonians). As the game spread across the country, teams from further North became the football powerhouses for remainder of the century.
