In 1960 Rovers knocked Burnley out of the FA Cup Quarter-Final and went to the final themselves thus preventing a possible Burnley league and Cup double. The Final itself was a disaster for Rovers.
Dave Whelan, left back for Rovers, before playing Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup Final at Wembley, 1960. Whelan broke his leg in the final reducing Rovers to 10 men in the days before sub's were used and it was all down hill from there. (Mr Whelan is now Chairman of Wigan Athletic, a Rovers fan and still affectionately remembered by the Rovers faithful).
