Wiki says …….
The 1894–1895 FA Cup was the 24th season of the world's oldest association football competition, the Football Association Challenge Cup (more usually known as the FA Cup). The cup was won by Aston Villa, who defeated West Bromwich Albion 1–0 in the final of the competition, played at Crystal Palace in London. This was Villa's second victory in the FA Cup.
The Trophy was stolen from a display in the shop window of W. Shillcock (a football fitter) in Newton Row, Birmingham, after the Final and never recovered despite a £10 reward. According to the Police, it was taken sometime between 21:30 on Wednesday 11 September and 7:30 the following morning, along with cash from a drawer. The cup was replaced by a copy of the original, made by Howard Vaughton, the former Aston Villa player and England international, who had opened a silversmith's business after his retirement from the game.
Incidentally the World Cup that was stolen in 1966 was again stolen in 1983 and not recovered.
ps If we get to the final this year I shall watch it, however I publicly disclose that I have never attended a football match in my life. The idea of wasting 90+ minutes of my life watching 22 millionaires rolling on the grass in agony because they've got a split nail would be hell.
