1926

A Manchester derby in Yorkshire?

Just two months after cruising to a 6-1 win at Old Trafford, City face Manchester United in an FA Cup semi-final at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane.

It was the second time we had reached this stage in three years, with the Reds standing in the way of our first appearance at Wembley Stadium.

However, David Ashworth’s side produced again to claim a comprehensive 3-0 victory thanks to Tommy Browell’s brace and another from Frank Roberts to set up a final against Bolton Wanderers.
