The was Tilbury's first win in the Essex Senior Cup. What was more significant was that Walthamstow Avenue,  the previous week had won the FA amateur cup. Final score was 4-1.

I can just about remember going to watch this match as a very young boy with my parents who both were involved with the club. I remember driving back to Tilbury and as we approach the town Flo Smith lent out of the car window with a school bell ringing it all the way to the ground where there was a party to celebrate.The players came back with the cup and to me it was enormous.I have many old tilbury programmes from the 40's 50's and 60's but this is the first time I have seen this one
