Arsenal results v Cardiff City
Our first game against Cardiff City was a Division 1 game that took place at Highbury on December 26, 1921 it ended in a 0-0 stalemate.
Our unhappiest defeat against Cardiff City came on St George’s Day, 23 April 1927, at Wembley Stadium in London. Cardiff became the only non-English side to win the FA Cup by defeating Arsenal 1–0 in the FA Cup Final. Hughie Ferguson scored the only goal of the game. In the 74th minute, he received the ball from Ernie Curtis and tamely shot toward the Arsenal goal. Dan Lewis, the Arsenal goalkeeper, seemed to have the ball in his grasp but, under pressure from Len Davies he clumsily allowed the ball to roll through his hands. In a further attempt to retrieve the ball he only succeeded in knocking the ball into his own net. King George V presented the trophy to Cardiff – only seven years after they had entered the Football League.
