History of Fulham Football Club

The Whites Reach FA Cup Semi-Final And Jezzard Becomes Manager

April 1958 Fulham is defeated 5-3 by Manchester United after a Replay at Highbury in the FA Cup Semi-Final. The match comes two months after the Munich Disaster.

Fulham finishes the 1957/58 season in fifth as a fixture pile-up stemming from the FA Cup run saw the Whites’ promotion bid fade. Later that year, Bedford Jezzard was promoted to the post of Manager. Graham Leggat also joined from Aberdeen in what would prove to be one of the best-ever pieces of transfer business by the Club, going on to score 134 goals in 277 appearances.
