Includes semi-final against Hull City

17 May ~ Arsenal meet Hull in the FA Cup final today with the chance to win a trophy for the first time since 2005. The two played in the 1930 semi-finals, with Division Two Hull taking the Gunners to a replay after a 2-2 draw at Elland Road. Arsenal subsequently won the second match 1-0 at Villa Park and went on to face manager Herbert Chapman's old club Huddersfield in the final. Despite the temporary distraction of the Graf Zeppelin flying overhead, Arsenal won their first ever FA Cup with a 2-0 victory.
