STFC: Town vs. Argyle (FA Cup History)

STFC: Town vs. Argyle (FA Cup History)

Plymouth Argyle at Home Park. Alas, this draw was probably one of the worst possible scenarios that Danny Wilson's side could have been given and here we are!

This will be the 99th fixture between the two sides in ALL competitions. Swindon have won 33, lost 44 and drawn 21.

Our last three encounters have all resulted in narrow defeats for Swindon (including the last gasp 3-2 loss to Argyle at the County Ground earlier this season).

However, Swindon and Plymouth have rarely played eachother in the F.A. Cup but when they have it's resulted in an Argyle victory.

GAME ONE:
Saturday, 28th November 1903
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 2-0 SWINDON TOWN

First half goals from Bob Dalrymple and former Newcastle United and Manchester United forward Jock Peddie was enough to give Argyle a 2-0 victory in what was only the second ever meeting between the two clubs.

PAFC: Jack Robinson, Andy Clark, Billy Leech, Harry Digweed, Bob Dalrymple, Walter Anderson, Jock Peddie, Bob Jack, Herbert Winterhalder, Charles Clark, John Edwards.

STFC: Fred Hemmings, Alex Milligan, Septimus Atterbury, Harry Oakden, Charlie Bannister, Jack Cowley, Tommy Green, Teddy Bullock, Neil Logan, Jimmy Pugh, Edward Reid.


GAME ONE:
Saturday, 16th January 1909
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 1-0 SWINDON TOWN

The only ever fixture between the two clubs in the F.A. Cup occurred within the same decade as the first tie. January 1909 in front of 21,388 spectators in Devon.

Argyle included former Town players Septimus Atterbury and Frank Warburton. Meanwhile, Swindon selected Harold Fleming, Billy Tout and Bob Jefferson who would be considered legends for their long term service to the club (Fleming would go on to play for England too).

However, the game went to Plymouth winning 1-0 thanks to a goal from South Shields born Inside-Left Jimmy Hindmarsh.

PAFC: W. Horne, Jack Butler, Septimus Atterbury, James McCormick, Charles Clark, Harry Wilcox, Bert Leavey, Ike Evenson, Jimmy Hindmarsh, Frank Warburton, Arthur Holden.
