Newcastle United forward Jack Allen (1903–1957, left) is congratulated by fans after the presentation of the FA Cup trophy at the final against Arsenal at Wembley Stadium, 23rd April 1932. Newcastle won the match, beating Arsenal 2-1, with Allen scoring both goals. His first however was controversial as it resulted from a cross by Newcastle winger Jimmy Richardson after the ball had crossed the goal line. Although the referee, W. P. Harper, ruled that the ball had been in play, later photographic evidence showed that this had not been the case.
