 The anniversary file

  • 28 March 1887: Royal Arsenal ended Season 1 with an away defeat to 2nd Rifle Brigade.  During this short season the club won 7, drew 1 and lost 2.  The club scored 36 and conceded 8.
  • 28 March 1896: Millwall 1 Arsenal 3.  This was the 18th game between the two great rivals either side of the Thames since February 1888, and Arsenal had not lost a single game.
  • 28 March 1898: Rushden Town 2 Woolwich Arsenal 3 in the United League.  Primarily a Midland League team Rushden nevertheless were able to compete on an equal footing at this time with Arsenal.
  • 28 March 1903: Last game for Duncan McNichol.  He had played 101 league games for Woolwich Arsenal, and moved on to Aberdeen in October.
  • 28 March 1910: Despite the low positions of both clubs Chelsea v Arsenal watched by 40,000. Arsenal won 0-1 with McGibbon scoring in his first match. McGibbon scores in his first match.    The day the modern Arsenal was born.    The 3rd of 3 matches in 4 days.
  • 28 March 1914: Birmingham 2 Arsenal 0.  Start of 4 match run without a win which cost the club promotion in its first year back in the second division.  This match was also almost certainly the source for the picture that was falsely used to “prove” that Arsenal wore black currant in the first season at Highbury.
  • 28 March 1931:  Arsenal won 5-2 at Middlesbrough on their way to first title while Herbie Roberts won his only cap for England.  Lambert got a hattrick and Jack two.
  • 28 March 1964: Arsenal 1 Sheffield U 3.  The 7th game without a win.  Only 21,000 turned up to see Geoff Strong score his 26th and last goal of the season in 38 games.
  • 28 March 1967: In a return to the approach of earlier times Arsenal played Liverpool twice over consecutive days (27/28th)  Both were draws.  George Graham scored the goal in this match – one of 11 goals in the season.
  • 28 March 1970: Arsenal 2 Wolverhampton 2, four without defeat after a dreadful winter, in which the club went 10 without a win.  Graham got both goals.
  • 28 March 1972: Arsenal 1 Southampton 0.  The start of nine unbeaten but the three successive defeats in March made the championship impossible.  Marinello’s winner was his one and only goal of the season.
  • 28 March 1980: Everton 0 Arsenal 1 made it six wins and two draws in the last eight.  Gatting scored the winner and like Marinello eight years earlier to the day it was his only goal of the season.
  • 28 March 1981: Arsenal 1 Liverpool 0.  The start of an eight match run to the end of the season in which Arsenal won seven.  Alan Sunderland scored.
  • 28 March 1986: Rhys Wilmot made his first team debut.  He went on to make a total of eight appearances for Arsenal over a nine year period, during which time he made over 70 appearances for clubs that he went to on loan.
  • 28 March 1987: Arsenal 0 Everton 1.  This was the sixth (and thankfully last) consecutive league match in which Arsenal failed to score – the longest run in the club’s league history.
  • 28 March 1998: Arsenal 1 Sheffield W 0.  Manninger was given the Carling Player of the month award and then promptly dropped – as Seaman returned from injury.  Arsenal second after 29th league game of the 2nd Double season.    The second double: part 1, part 2, part 3.
  • 28 March 2004: Arsenal 1 Man U 1.  Ferguson announced that he was sure Arsenal would win the league but later added that Arsenal would not do it unbeaten, referring back to his experience at Rangers where the unbeaten side lost the last match of the season.   This was the first draw after nine successive wins in the 30th league game of the unbeaten season
  • 28 March 2006: Arsenal 2 Juventus 0.  Champions League quarter final. Pires rather surprisingly tackled Vieira and Arsenal scored.  Pires later admitted he had never tackled Vieira before even in training.
  • 28 March 2013: Arsenal announce that Diaby has been injured in training and would be out for nine months.
