First player 2000's was Joseph Yobo

1966

Mike Trebilcock was the first black player to score in an FA Cup final, scoring two goals for Everton in the 3-2 defeat of Sheffield Wednesday in 1966. This turned out to be the first final where the losing team also acknowledged the crowd with a lap of honour. Sheffield Wednesday were leading 2-0 midway through the second half, eventually losing 3-2 to an Everton onslaught.
