BY: Strong, Woodruff, Mather, Attwell, Brown, Bray, Chew, Morriss, Harrison, Potts, Kippax. Referee: J M Wiltshire Attendance: 99,000 Charlton, beaten finalists in 1946, returned the following year to defeat Second Division Burnley by the only goal of a match. Their convincing display against high scoring Newcastle in the semi-final, allied to the 'unknown' tag attached to their Lancashire opponents, made Charlton favourites. The Final was played in tremendous heat, with the players of both teams drained of energy long before the end of the match. As in 1946, extra time was needed, and until Duffy's spectacular winning goal the additional period had been played practically at walking pace. The main two incidents of note in normal time had been Potts' drive smacking against the Chariton crossbar and the bursting of the ball for the second successive year! With the first Final replay since 1912 looking a distinct possibility as the stalemate continued, Charlton broke the deadlock six minutes from the end of extra time. Welsh flicked on Robinson's high cross and Duffy's volley from near the penalty spot sailed past Strong's left shoulder and into the net. In the short time that remained, Burnley launched a frantic series of attacks, and in one of these Morris sends a header looping over Bartram... and over the bar.
