13 AprCrook Town -0-3 Played at Ipswich
The Lynn team that played in the final which took place on 6thApril 1901 was: Gay, Haylock, Girton, Reed, Stevens, Sporne, Orviss, Holroyd, MacDonald, Horsley, Smith.
MacDonald got the equalising goal for Lynn in front of a 4,000 crowd.
In the replay the following week the same team took to the field although there were some positional changes. Apparently Lynn were never in it and Crook missed a penalty and had a goal disallowed. The match was played in appalling conditions - not helped in that the game immediately followed a Norfolk & Suffolk League match between Ipswich and Yarmouth Town. There were 1,500 in attendance and Lynn wore black arm bands in memory of former player Arthur Murrell who had died that week.
