In the latest installment of our classic programmes series, we look at the cover from a marathon FA Cup tie in 1960, the second replay of first division Arsenal against second division Rotherham in the third round.
Having each played one game at home, two neutral venues (one nearer to each club) were selected, and a coin toss held to see whether the game would be played closer to Rotherham at Hillsborough, Sheffield, or at White Hart Lane in north London. Rotherham won the toss, and this beautifully illustrated programme cover was created. Rotherham went on to win the game, before losing to Brighton and Hove Albion in the next game, after a further marathon three games.
