New Exhibition: Dick Pym, the fisherman footballer

Dick Pym was the premier English goalkeeper of the 1920s, gaining winner’s medals in three FA Cup finals without conceding a single goal. Our 1923 exhibition tells his rags to pitches story, including his part in a pre-WW1 soccer tour of South America, and centring on the 1923 FA Cup Final.  Played 100 years ago this year, the ‘White Horse’ Final was the first to be played at Wembley and the match did not turn out as the promotors expected.  If you’re keen on football, and even if you’re not, you’ll enjoy this amazing, heartwarming story.
