Everton and Manchester City Football Teams walk onto the pit
Photograph showing the Everton (light shirts) and Manchester City (dark shirts) teams walking onto the pitch at Wembley Stadium, prior to the start of the F.A. Cup Final of 1933. Everton won the game 1-0, thanks to a goal from Dixie Dean. This was one of the first occasions on which footballers wore numbers on the back of their shirts. The reason for this innovation was to help the BBC radio commentators and their listeners follow the action. As can be seen, Everton took the numbers 1 to 11 and Manchester City took 12 to 22.
