Newcastle 1923/24 - Season Summary
|Division 1||9th||Manager||Directors Committee|
|FA Cup||Won||Trainer||J McPherson|
|Chairman||JP Oliver||Top Scorer||N Harris (23)|
After years of FA Cup disappointment Newcastle emerged victorious at Wembley against strong favourites Aston Villa.
It took them eight games to get to Wembley including a famous "four gamer" against Second Division Derby. It was a classic final, won with two goals in the last seven minutes from Seymour and Harris.
League form was indifferent with United spending the vast majority of the season hanging around mid table.
In the last game of the season (a week before the Final) The Magpies lost 6-1 at Villa Park after they put out a reserve side; a decision which cost them a whopping £750 fine.
New arrivals included two more Scots; left-half William Gibson and left-back James Hunter. It was a very experienced side and in some matches the average age topped 32.
