Club History Liverpool win 1965 FA Cup Final

Liverpool win 1965 FA Cup Final

It’s 1st May 1965. Bill Shankly leads out his Liverpool team alongside Don Revie’s Leeds United in front of a packed Wembley Stadium.

Five minutes into the match, Gerry Byrne broke his collarbone and, as subs were not allowed, he continued playing, unaware of the extent of his injury.

The game was goalless so went into extra-time and the deadlock was finally broken. Gerry Byrne’s cross was headed into the Leeds goal by Roger Hunt to make it 1-0. Leeds equalised eight minutes later through Billy Bremner, whose shot beat Tommy Lawrence in the Liverpool goal. With three minutes of extra-time remaining, Ian St John scored with a header to win the game, and the cup, for the Reds.
