Wembley, May 8, 1971 - an historic day for Arsenal Football Club.

On that baking hot afternoon, the Gunners beat Liverpool 2-1 after extra time to win the FA Cup and complete the Club's first Double.

Manager Bertie Mee and coach Don Howe were the brains behind the success story while Frank McLintock was Arsenal's leader on the pitch.

The Gunners had to come from behind in the final after Steve Heighway gave Liverpool an extra-time lead but Eddie Kelly equalised and Charlie George smashed in the winner.
