It was a period of high ideals and ready compromise”.The move which probably did most to broaden the outlook of The FA and spread its influence over a wider field was made at a meeting at the office of The Sportsman newspaper on 20 July 1871.The sticking point was ‘hacking’, or kicking an opponent on the leg, which Blackheath FC wanted to keep.The laws originally drafted by Morley were finally approved at the sixth meeting, on 8 December, and there would be no hacking.Morley wrote to Bell’s Life, a popular newspaper, suggesting that football should have a set of rules in the same way that the MCC had them for cricket.

But its motives and ambitions were so honourably based that, like growing ripples on a still pond, its standing grew perceptibly.Apparently, many of them felt that competition would lead to unhealthy rivalry and even bitterness.The first Cup season turned out to be quite truncated with withdrawals and byes.The clubs represented were: Barnes, War Office*, Crusaders, Forest (Leytonstone), No Names (Kilburn), Crystal Palace**, Blackheath, Kensington School, Perceval House (Blackheath), Surbiton, Blackheath Proprietory School and Charterhouse.*Civil Service FC, who now play in the Southern Amateur League’s Senior Division One, are the only surviving club of the eleven who signed up to be FA members at that first meeting in 1863, when they were listed as the War Office.
