A Record Win For Arsenal On This Day, 12th March 1900

A record-breaking win for Arsenal, in front of 600 hardy souls.

Or is it the biggest win? If we view purely in terms of competitive matches then yes this victory over Loughborough is the biggest for the club. It has been matched twice in friendlies, most recently in 1965, as well as an FA Cup first qualifying round victory over Ashford United in 1893.

Twice it has been beaten, once a 15-2 win in the London War Cup in 1940 whilst the unofficial biggest win was 26-1 over a French Select side in 1904.
