FA Celebrations at Forest Town Welfare 1959

When Notts Forest Won the Cup

By Paul Mapes

Watching the football celebrations on television last Sunday (26th Feb 2011) when Liverpool won the Carling Cup brought to mind this photo of a celebration in Forest Town Miners Welfare back in 1959 when Nottingham Forest won the FA Cup.

I believe the FA Cup (that year anyway) was taken round various venues and 'shown off' - maybe someone has more knowledge of this than I do and can add a comment to this page.

Nottingham Forests opponents in the 1959 final were Luton Town, I believe the score was Notts. 2 - Luton 1. Notts played the last hour with only ten men.  www.nottinghamforest.co.uk will tell you more.
