Arsenal On This Day, 17th January 1968

The club’s first Football League Cup semi-final took place on this day, the first leg at Highbury. The visitors included several in their starting line-up who would rise to the top of the English game in the following decade, most notably Trevor Cherry and Frank Worthington. Bob McNab had of course, arrived at Arsenal from Leeds Road in October 1966. He made his England debut in November 1968.
