West Ham, captained by Bobby Moore and managed by Ron Greenwood, won the match 3–2 to win the FA Cup for the first time. Second Division Preston led twice through Doug Holden and Alex Dawson respectively, with John Sissons and Geoff Hurst equalising for West Ham. Ronnie Boyce then scored the winner for the London club in the 90th minute.

Preston's Howard Kendall became the youngest player to play in a Wembley FA Cup Final, aged 17 years and 345 days.[2] He retained this record until 1980, when Paul Allen played in that year's final for West Ham at the age of 17 years and 256 days.[3]
