1894/95 Season Summary

In 1894/95 Central won national fame by reaching the first round proper of the F.A. Cup the equivalent of today’s third round. After defeating South Shore 1-0, Nelson 4-0, Fleetwood 4-0{at the third attempt and Workington 5-0 after a replay they were paired against Everton at Scarisbrick New Road. A then ground record of 5000 saw the home side fight gallantly throughout but were well beaten by 3-0. Like the Cup tie of 1968 Everton wanted to transfer the match to Goodison Park. However, they were-not prepared to accede to Central’s £200 guarantee. Central had been promised £5 each in the event of a win or draw. The club made £59 as their share of the gate with £30 being spent on extra accommodation and snow clearing.
