For the first time a Wembley FA Cup Final ended in a draw after extra-time, as Chelsea and Leeds United shared four goals on 11 April 1970. Twice Chelsea were behind at Wembley, to Leeds goals scored by Jack Charlton and Mick Jones but, twice Chelsea equalised, first through Peter Houseman and then through Ian Hutchinson’s diving header from a John Hollins cross. The 1970 Final was played on possibly the worst Wembley playing surface ever, and both teams shared a deserved lap of honour at the end of an energy sapping 120 minutes.

En- route to the Final, Peter Osgood scored in every round for Chelsea, and Ossies diving header from Charlie Cooke’s reverse pass, twelve minutes from time in the Cup Final Replay at Old Trafford on 29 April, kept up his record of scoring in every round - a feat not equalled since. Led by Ron Harris, Chelsea finally took the lead, for the first time in the Final, fourteen minutes into extra time in the Replay, when David Webb, headed the winning goal, after a long throw by Hutchinson had been helped on by Leeds centre half Jack Charlton, and after being behind three times in the FA Cup Final, Dave Sexton’s Chelsea won the club’s first FA Cup.
