Arsenal On This Day, 17th March 1928

A rehearsal for an FA Cup semi-final between the two sides which the Lancastrians would go on to win by a goal to nil.

Charlie Buchan scored a brace this day as his Arsenal career entered its’ twilight; he was 36 years old when he scored these goals. He would score three more times for the club that season – all of them at Highbury – to bring his total for the club to 49 in 102 appearances.
